Boys Stitchin'

Our talented graphic designer Courtney Kyle created the artwork for a delightful collection of machine embroideries that are sure to thrill the boys in your life. The Vintage Boys Stitchin' CD, now available at, includes twenty-one designs for the 4x4 hoop and eighteen for the 5x7 hoop (twenty-one unique designs in all): Spaceships and robots; fast cars and big trucks; trains, tractors, boats and planes, all in vintage style and ready to embroider on clothes, quilts, backpacks and more.

Pair these cool designs with bright mini-checks and matching piping from Martha Pullen Company to decorate a growing boy's bedroom. Make a spread for the bed, window valances and pillows like the one here, and he'll never complain about bedtime! He'll cozy into bed with his favorite robot pillowcase and dream of adventures with all of his Boys Stitchin' friends.

Just for fun, we stitched up a rocket ship and spaceman on a soft knit suit, sure to tickle the fancy of a future astronaut. We also added a robot to a short-sleeved romper for the budding engineer. These delightful designs stitch out quickly and easily, and your favorite little man will wear them proudly.

Does he love motorcycles? Courtney's vintage rendition sports spoke wheels. Boats? He can choose the tug or the sleek speedboat. There are three unique robots, each in two sizes, and three unique rocket/spaceships in two sizes, so he won't outgrow his favorite embroideries even though he outgrows his clothes.
