The new year can refresh the mind and the blank slate it offers can inspire you to plan for the year ahead. Arriving just in time for the new year, and offering inspiration for projects you are planning for 2019, is The School of Making’s Design Bundle #6. Like the bundles before, this Design Bundle is a curated selection of fabric, stencil designs, thread, embroidery floss, and beads specifically created to allow you to practice your favorite appliqué, embroidery techniques, and bead arrangements from The School of Making.
With Design Bundle #6 we have, for the first time, created a single color card featuring our favorite paint colors (both tonal and metallic) for specific colors. We are also launching our newest fabric color, Verdant. A fresh green that is reminiscent of nature in woodlands, creeks, streams, and that is an intricate color in wildlife from a multitude of geographies, Verdant, and the entire color story of the bundle was inspired by the ideas of growth, renewal, and peace.
Additionally, Design Bundle #6 features two brand new stencil designs: Abstract and Canopy. Inspired by the natural world and ideal for practicing a variety of appliqué techniques, both are available as a 10mil Mylar stencil or as a US Letter or A4 downloadable PDF. (Follow the link on the Journal here for instructions on creating your own stencil.)
