Welcome winter with this fun-to-create pillow cover and these amazing embroidery designs from Sewing With Nancy.
Note: You'll want to embroider the designs first, then cut out and construct the pillow cover. Please see the Helpful Tips section on the Downloadable Project Instructions
To achieve the handwork look, the Crewel Snowflake Flurries Embroidery Collection
was specially digitized to use a combination of two threads: Lana (wool/acrylic) and Cotona (30 wt., 100% cotton). The Crewel Snowflake Flurries Thread Pack
includes all the colors used in this collection. Again, refer to the Helpful Tips section for recommendations about: needles, tension settings, and machine speed.
The downloadable layout guide also offers helpful tips for stabilizing your project and design placement.
