The School of Making - Stenciled Sample Swatch and Embroidery Floss

THE YEAR OF COLOR: SAMPLE SWATCHES

After announcing our Year of Color, we shared more the inspiration behind the first Color Palette Bundle with trend forecaster Li Edelkoort. With limitless combinations and possibilities, there’s so much opportunity for color and design exploration in our Year of Color series. Our Sample Swatches complement the exploration process—pair unstenciled and stenciled swatches in the colors of your choice, choose your thread or embroidery floss, and practice your embroidery techniques to create a completed 10” x 16” swatch. 

Find a selection of swatches with design choices listed below that highlight colors from the Color Palette Bundle to use as inspiration.

P.S.: The following projects serve as more inspiration and can be created with the Sample Swatches—or choose to store your swatches in our binder to make your own swatch library.
