Lions, Tigers & Trims – Oh My!

Lions, Tigers & Trims - Polar Ice trim roll

Lions, Tigers & Trims - Oh My!

This pretty trim roll is the result of a collaboration with Lois Mourisksi Bear of Lady Dot Creates and me - and we had a grand time.

Lady Dot hand dyes quite an array of trims in lovely colors, and both trim rolls shown here highlight that in a couple of different ways. Plus, in addition to two alternate designs for the outside of the roll - one with the title’s lion, tiger and bear - and the other with an alphabet, you also get four more outtakes to use for pockets and pin cushions. The design is charted for just two related colors, and can also be stitched in one color only.

Available ONLY to retailers who attended our workshop at the Nashville Needlework Market in March 2020. Many will be organizing classes and events for this project - watch for their details. A list of those exclusive shops is noted below.

Notes for supplies listed here are for the models as shown.

Plus - notes on Pom Trim Tape Removal from Lady Dot Creates!
