Bareroots Embroidery Kits

We are facing more days indoors in the next few months so this is a great time to get a stitchery kit. Bareroots has introduced their kits for embroidered dish towels. Each kit includes the towel, floss, instructions, pattern and rick rack. You need to furnish the needle and transfer the design to the towel.

Wondering how you will get it transferred to the towel? DMC has an embroidery tracing paper that will do the trick. Be sure and pre-wash your towel.

If you need a needle, we have several choices as well.

If you want to do more than one, we can supply the dish towels as well.

Modern Love from Northcott Fabrics

Northcott Fabrics does some of the most beautiful digital prints we have seen. The colors are amazing and the designs so contemporary.

Creations display of Modern Love from Northcott Fabrics & Bamboo Knit

The digital print above runs parallel to the selvedge. It is not a panel, but running yardage.
The coordinating prints to the ombre are beautiful on their own.

We can’t leave out those who love to sew. The garment in the picture is from the Laurelhurst pattern. It’s great for a knit because all of the edges of the garment are just left raw. None of that time consuming hemming here. The knit used is one of our Bamboo and Rayon combinations. These knit have great drape and enough weight to make the front lapels hang just great. We actually made the pants from one of the solids and used our favorite Hudson Pants pattern.

Hourglass Floral kit from Creations

This quilt is such a simple idea and very easy to make. It features prints from Kaffe and “solids” from Marcia Derse. It’s a great combination!

Our kit contains the pattern along with 8 Kaffe Florals and 8 Marcia Derse Palette solids. The binding is also included.

For the backing you will need to purchase:

5yds for 42″ wide fabric or

2 1/2″ for 108″ wide directional fabric or

2yds 108″ wide non-directional fabric

If you have lots of Kaffe stashed away, then you might want the pattern and some of the Palette solids.
