Request of the Week: Santa and Mrs. Claus Sketches
 


Sketch-style designs are light and open. The dramatic effect in the art is achieved by using three shades of color, along with varying densities of stitches. We've mainly featured animals and birds in the sketch medleys and collages. But Paulette asked us to try Santa, and Mrs. Claus.

Oh what fun it was to create these designs! They're a perfect match for smooth, neutral fabrics, such as quilter's cotton, twill, linen, denim, and canvas. Thank you, Paulette, for the suggestion!

The Request of the Week program is one where you can suggest a design for us to draw and digitize. It's a popular program, and designs are scheduled through 2015 and beyond. However, we still want to read your ideas. Send requests to stitch@emblibrary.com. We'll add them to the list of designs to be created!
