Free Project Instructions!

New designs this week are ready to prance and dance their way onto your embroidery projects, and will have you roaring with delight!

Begin with safari silhouettes. These beautiful designs use only one color thread, and are drawn so that perspective and foreshortening create a nearly three-dimensional effect.

Peek-a-boo zoo designs are wonderful on bibs, quilts, wall hangings, and more. Colorful critters peek out from branches, tall grasses, and jungle greenery. Wonderful on items for the young, and the young at heart as well!

Barnyard animals are having a happy hoedown, a jolly jubilee. And, new applique forest animals are perfectly paired with your favorite fabrics. Use felt, Minkee, and fleece for a tactile adventure. Let these designs dance and prowl their way onto your embroidery projects today!

Stitch designs on one side, leave the other side blank, and get ready to play a marvelous memory game. Click here for free project instructions!
