Make it your own
With the Land That I Love book you can make your favorite state the center of attention.
This Ohio towel is done with red work for simpler stitching; only one color required! Note that a heart and star pattern are provided to identify your favorite towns or landmarks. We also added the Ohio State University pennant. This is one great way to show team spirit.
In this Missouri Towel we used 2 colors to outline in University of Missouri colors as another way to share team spirit! See the thicker border which is achieved using multiple threads from Crossroads 12 weight spools and a chain stitch. The chain stitch is a favorite because it is so easy! See how to stitch it in this video: Crossroads Embroidery Series: Learn the Chain Stitch.
For each of the 50 states you’ll find unique line art:
Design your state with several style and size options
Create towels with state shapes, birds or flowers.
Add university & college pennants
Stitch iconic motifs that distinguish each state’s culture and community
Check out this close up of the Texas towel we shared in the video; it shows some of the different stitches and fonts to choose from in this book.
