Hip to Be Zipped

NEW THIS WEEK - August 31st, 2011
 

Hip to Be Zipped
 

Free Project Instructions!

There's a bit of autumn in the air -- a slight crisp feeling in the early morning and late evening. And even though the days are still warm, Mother Nature's cool vibe has us thinking about sweatshirts.

Hooded and zipped sweatshirts, to be exact. Those  cozy, snug-as-a-bug-in-a-rug, hipper-than-hip items that are worn everywhere. For savvy stitchers, sweatshirts are blank canvases, begging for embellishment.

New designs this week are the perfect fit for hooded sweatshirts. New themes include colorful cupcakes, radical robots, groovy flowers, and sweet night owls. You'll find new collegiate letters and numbers -- in stitch-filled and applique versions, too! There's even a split applique batch, so you can boldly stitch odd-numbered words and monograms across plackets, carrying the theme and message to each side of the sweatshirt.

Cool designs, for cool, hip, and trendy hoodies.

Add sweet, hip stitches to hoodies. Use split designs and spread your message across zipper plackets! For instructions and placement ideas, click here.

Hip to Be Zipped Owl Design Packs
 

Owls are known for being very wise. We think they get their smarts from reading books -- hoot-dunnits seem to be their favorite genre. And, here's how you can tell the difference between an educated owl, and an uneducated owl: The uneducated owl says "whoooooo." The educated owl says "whoooooom."

However you use these designs, they're sure to be a hoot. Stitch them on hoodies, or add their charm to bed and bath linens. Stitch in retro green and brown hues, or dream of purple, orange, or blue owls. Stitch 'em your way, to suit your preference and taste!

Collegiate Crafty Cut (Applique) Alphabet


Hip hip, applique! Crafty cut applique letters are not only fast additions to shirts, towels, and bags, but they add interesting depth and dimension, too. Choose a non-fraying fabric, like wool felt, for best results.

Applique collegiate letters are available in split and unsplit forms. Use the split letters to stitch across a placket! Only $1 each, or buy the pack for only $19.97! For single letters, click on the A, B, or C below and scroll through the department, selecting the letters that you need.
 
     

Keep an eye out for the "split" versions of the applique letters. Use these to stitch across a placket. Here's a tip: if the word or name that you want to stitch has an even number of letters, then you won't need to work with the split versions. If your word or name has an odd number of letters, then you'll need one split letter. Here's an example (right) that demonstrates this idea.

The word "craft" has an odd number of letters, so Kenny used the split A design. The other letters are not split. The word "diva" has an even number of letters, so no split design was necessary.
