Art Nouveau

Free Project Instructions!

 

Elegant, organic Art Nouveau style is known for its winning combination of graceful lines and natural elements. Full of flowing, stylized exquisiteness, the look beautifully lends itself to household items and garments alike.

Wonderfully-detailed Art Nouveau animals, such as a swan, chimp, and rabbit, dwell among swirling botanicals, while individual plants and creatures are formed from curving strokes and vibrant colors. The mesmerizing embroidery will bring a majestic touch to endless items such as decorative pillows, tote bags, shirt plackets, aprons, and more!

Art Nouveau decorator packs, twirling with intricate crosses, flitting hummingbirds, and weaving scrolls, provide all of the necessary shapes to embellish items and carry the theme throughout rooms and wardrobes. Available in features, borders, and corners, the delectable designs are wonderful when used on table and bed linens, as well as clothing hems and pockets.
