ALABAMA CHANIN - FOREST THREAD AND INSPIRATION

FOREST GREEN: THREAD + TARTAN

We’re super excited to announce the re-launch of Forest thread. For many years, Forest was one of the staple thread colors for our collection. Recently re-launched, it is a rich, deep green that pairs perfectly with our Forest colored 100% Organic Cotton Jersey.

Most recently used in combination with our Anna’s Garden and Tartan stencils, you’ll find lots of design inspiration below from archived collection pieces. All the styles shown here can be created through Custom DIY, and purchase Forest thread for your next project here.

    I think you read my mind. I’ve been wanting to do a forest garment and having the matching thread is what I’ve been hoping for!

    I LOVE Anna’s Garden with the Tartan combo! So it’s black with Forest. Guess I need the Tartan stencil! Very pretty together… just more work for me!
