2 new AKD design sets added to website...

Some of you may already have the OLD #451 Retro Tree Set [it also included the recycle symbols and non-applique trees], if so, you won't need the 2 new sets in this post - #451 Applique Retro Trees and #473 Recycle Symbols. I've just broken the old set up into smaller sets to make them more manageable and re-sized the designs a little - nothing major.

I just love the simple look these trees have and they are so easy to stitch! They're perfect for your "Go Green" projects - they pair perfectly with the #473 Recycle Symbols.

I have included new Raw Edge Applique Instructions that weren't included in the old set, so you can download those by clicking on the link HERE.

Picture of the stitch out above includes:

#451 Applique Retro Tree set

set [non-applique set and not on the website yet]
