Cool off with Christmas in July from Anita Goodesign — gingerbread, candy canes, and carols! These embroidery design collections can hit everyone on your list! The grandkids will love the 3D Gingerbread House and their mom will see the beauty in the Christmas Arrangements.
Oh, and let’s not forget the bright and colorful last call of summer embroidery designs. It’s an endless summer with these two bright embroidery collections.
3D Gingerbread House
The sugary existence of gingerbread houses can be traced all the way back to 16th century Germany. Over the years, these candy adorned, edible cookie houses have become associated with Christmas tradition. Our new 3D Gingerbread House Collection will allow you to create your very own, however, this one will require a different list of ingredients!
Follow this tutorial’s step-by-step instructions down the gum drop path to a delicious 3D Gingerbread House. The finished project can be used during holiday seasons to come as your family celebrates the most wonderful time of the year!
Each of these designs are very beautiful and would look great in a variety of places! Using a mixture of both embroidery and appliqués, we were able to truly bring each design to life! Try adding these designs to create holiday sweaters, place mats, personalized Christmas Stockings, or even gift bags! Since we were in the spirit of giving, we even added a full, in-depth tutorial on how to create a holiday gift bag from start to finish!
My True Love Gave to Me
Unfortunately, we can’t write songs. However, we can help you stitch your way to the holiday with a festive quilting collection to the tune of the 12 Days of Christmas! From a partridge in a pear tree to twelve drummers drumming, each of the 12 Days in this collection are represented beautifully through the art of embroidery. This collection includes folded fabric borders, along with our appliqué technique, which is outlined in a blanket stitch. Put the days on display in your home this Christmas season!
With the sun, the sand, and the our new collection in hand, this summer will never have to end! Endless Summer includes 15 detailed summer themed embroidery designs that will set the stage for this beloved season.
To get started creating these beautiful designs, find summer inspiration that speaks to you. Our creative team used multiple inspirations and chose a different color palette for each design. The tutorial will give you a list of specific thread colors we used, but of course, you can create your own!
Bold and bright, our Moroccan Quilt collection features a blend of ornate patterns, vibrant colors, and prominent stitches for a worldly vibe! Each design consists of elaborate appliqué fabrics radiating vivid reds, oranges, blues, and greens on a gray background. These intricate designs lend a unique and stylized feel to any embroidery project you stitch out.
Traditionally, crewelwork embroidery is a type of free embroidery hand-stitched with wool thread onto a tightly woven linen twill surface. For this collection, we embraced the artistry of traditional crewelwork by creating designs to match this iconic embroidery style. By incorporating linens and unique stitches that depict this style of embroidery, we were able to reintroduce crewelwork to the modern embroiderer.
There are 20 intricately detailed, rectangular quilt blocks included in this collection, along with 3 sashing blocks. Each design in Crewelwork Canvas illustrates a beautiful nature scene in the hills. Every block comes in 5 sizes (AA-D) making this a “Mix & Match” collection and compatible with other Anita Goodesign “Mix & Match” collections.
