Fall Fashionista

Free Project Instructions!

 

Autumn is all around us, swirling and twirling with energy and color. Mother Nature dresses the forests and fields in brilliant shades of orange, red, and gold, and crisp, cool sunsets give way to velvety-blue evenings.

There's a crackle of "change" in the great outdoors, inspiring us to bring the spirit of "change" indoors, too. We can freshen up sweatshirts, sweaters, and fleece jackets with new embroidery designs, or make a set of seasonal towels for the bath.

Celebrate and embrace that sense of "change" with new designs that celebrate fall and fashion, together. Feathers are excellent accents to skirts, sweaters, and jackets. Wispy wheat designs are perfect on autumn-themed table runners, placemats, and napkins. Scampering squirrels, elegant blackwork, groovy blocks -- each new design has been carefully crafted to bring the flavor of fall fashions to you.

It's Feather Weather

The change in seasons means a change of location for many birds. In Minnesota, we're saying
"see you next year!" to birds of all sizes, from songbirds to raptors. It's an excellent coincidence
that feathers are the top fashion item this year -- a perfect blend of nature and haute couture.
 
Available in three sizes:
7.81"X9.94" and 5.85"X7.47" and 4.84"X6.16"


A border of colorful feathers is delightful on skirt hems, blanket borders, even banded or
unbanded towel sets! Change the colors in the feathers to match your home decor or style.
The smaller size of this design has been formatted for the Endless Hoop; it may also be used
in standard hoops.
 
 
Available in two sizes:

palette, and make the design uniquely you. The medium size of this design has been formatted

with fiery red, glowing orange, and glittering gold. Those colors contrast beautifully with the
crisp and cool air.

New designs pair the hot-and-cool season together, in basic black. This delicate and lacy
detail is perfect on shirts, skirts, and dresses. Use tone-on-tone for a subtle statement, or
contrasting colors for bold and beautiful.
