Go Green

Free Project Instructions!

"Green" may be the buzzword of the moment, but it's an idea that's as old as time -- taking care of the planet that provides for all our physical needs. Celebrate the green revival with this week's new design collection, and craft a greener future!


Make a statement that's caring and fashionable when you stitch your favorite green messages on reusable grocery totes, shirts, and more. Thirty-five different designs in three sizes each mean you'll find a design to suit all the people you're saving the planet for ... men, women, babies, grandparents, fashionistas, even chocolate lovers.


Celebrate the planet's wonderful diversity of animal species with ten creatures in heirloom applique. From very endangered animals like the beautiful panda bear to success stories like the gray wolf, these creatures of land, sea, and air will find a safe place in your heart.


Earth Day is just around the corner on April 22. Make every day an earth day when you stitch these eco-friendly designs on reusable grocery totes, sweatshirts, and other gifts. And be sure to scroll all the way to the bottom of the page for the Go Green Tweet of the Week!

Reuse a sweatshirt by turning it into a handy little bag!
