Request of the Week: Snowman Sketch
 


Lisa knew that a friendly snowman in a sketch-style would be a frosty and fun addition to winter decor! Sketch-style designs are light and open, and they're an excellent match for smooth, neutral fabrics. Embroider onto tea towels, twill, quilter's cotton, duck cloth, and similar smooth fabrics. Steer clear of patterned fabric, as the sketch effect will be muted.

Thank you, Lisa, for the excellent suggestion!

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!
