Northwoods Animal Silhouettes


Noble, majestic, and wild! This wolf silhouette design uses only one color thread. Stitch him on sweatshirts and fleece jackets, and get ready to howl at the autumn harvest moon. Use grey, brown, or black thread -- or use white on dark fabric for a stunning white and wintry wolf!

 

Available in three sizes:
5.85"X6.17" and 4.85"X5.10" and 3.69"X3.86"



Hunters will love sporting this buck silhouette. The large size is a perfect fit for a shirt front or back, and the smallest size is just right for the left chest area.

 

Available in three sizes:
5.85"X8.02" and 4.84"X6.63" and 2.81"X3.85"



The variety of stitches used in this silhouette designs results in an eye-catching and wild look. Fills are paired with sleek satin stitches to emphasize each animal's features. In this design, satin stitches make the bear's fur come to life from sweatshirts, cardigans, tote bags, and table linens for woodsy dwellings.

 

Available in three sizes:
5.86"X6.17" and 4.86"X5.09" and 3.71"X3.85"



A moose and his majestic rack are the focal points of this silhouette design. The smooth stitches on the right give a hint as to the massive breadth and size of this Northwoods creature.

 

Available in three sizes:
7.14"X5.82" and 5.95"X4.85" and 3.86"X3.16"



A few weeks ago we presented the first group of "silhouette" designs, called Safari Silhouettes. You can find them by clicking here. When Stitcher Teresa saw those, she said "I need a wildcat!" Teresa, you got it -- and here's a fierce and fabulous wildcat!

 

Available in three sizes:
5.81"X8.22" and 4.84"X6.84" and 2.71"X3.85"



Simple, sleek stitches, with magnificent appeal. Let this eagle fly proud from T-shirts, sweatshirts, tote bags, and wall hangings.

 

Available in three sizes:
5.85"X6.30" and 4.84"X5.21" and 3.58"X3.86"



It's fall, y'all, and that means that squirrels are running hither and yon, to and fro, storing up their nutty treats for the winter. This frantic little fellow looks great in any autumn shade, from deep red to bright yellow to fiery orange.

 

Available in three sizes:
8.19"X5.82" and 6.84"X4.84" and 3.87"X2.72"



Duck hunters will love this design peeking from sweatshirts and jackets. Achieve a near tone-on-tone effect when embellishing garments by following this guideline: When stitching on dark fabric, use a shade of thread that is slightly brighter or lighter than the fabric. When stitching on light fabric, choose a shade of thread that is slightly darker than the fabric. Stunning results!

 

Available in three sizes:
6.40"X5.86" and 5.28"X4.86" and 3.85"X3.55"
