  • This beautiful young woman, torn between the modern world and her heritage looks wary and fearful.  She seeks help from  her totem - the Warrior Cougar -- for decisiveness to choose the right path for her life. The female Cougar is known for her awareness and ability to plan out the best way to proceed.

    While some Native American peoples dreaded and greatly feared the Cougars (Mountain Lion, Puma ), some embraced them as their totems.

    You can stitch this pair on their own background as shown, or on batik fabric or other fabric with some texture.  Or since they are each complete designs you can use them individually on projects.

    Alignment lines and instructions included to easily line up the designs for a full picture. The image before the Free Design shows how the designs go together.

    Finished Size of Embroidery as shown without the fabric frame: 

    MEDIUM 13.5" x 10"   LARGE  16" x 11.8"   JUMBO  22" x 16.4"

  • Use as accent designs or combine as a quilt or throw for your couch. These fun headdresses would be perfect for a lap quilt for a child. Or put one on the back of a little one's shirt. The sixth one would be great for a girl! I'm sure she would think those are earrings. Also you could use them on a serious throw for the den.

  • Dreamcatchers can be used a lot of ways. Try them as part of a wall hanging with other Native American designs, or on the back of a denim shirt or jacket. They would also be great as part of a quilt. Or frame them individually for the wall.

  • Perfect designs to combine with bright colored fabrics for a quilt! Or use them on clothing - the border of a shawl, the end of a scarf, a row going down the front of a jacket or pockets to add a splash of color. They can also be used on linens. Make a table runner, border a tablecloth or put some down the side of a place mat. These designs are very impressive!

  • Kachina's originated in the Western Pueblo Native American Cultures. They are spirit beings that are revered but not worshipped. They represent everything from ancestors, to sun and stars, corn and crops, insects and many other concepts. They can have relationships - sisters, brothers, uncles, etc.

    The central theme of the kachina cult is the presence of life in all objects that fill the universe. Everything has an essence or a life force, and humans must interact with and respect these or fail to survive.

    These would be great on a child's quilt or man's lap robe. Or frame several for an impressive display.

  • A customer asked if the Kokopelli Bag could be made into a wall hanging. I thought that was a great idea and this now hangs in Rick's office - a little bit of the Southwest here in New England. It is all done in the hoop and is super easy to assemble. I used ultra suede for the binding and braided hanger. You will get instructions for finishing the wall hanging as I did below.
    Finished Wall Hanging Size: Medium - 20.5” wide x 17.5” high, Large - 24” wide x 20.6” high

  • This is my vision of Kokopelli: At sunrise he dances and plays his flute across the desert bringing life and color to the once dry cracked sand. Kokopelli has been worshiped at least since the times of the ancient pueblo people, 750-850 AD. He has become known to represent the entire southwestern US and is a popular character for all kinds of decoration. He represents among many things fertility, spring and music.
    In addition to the designs shown below you will receive instructions to make the purse shown. The designs I've used to border the zipper can also be used along the top of the bag to increase it's height or to make a strap.

    The medium bag (shown below) is 12 " high x 14.9 " wide and the large is 14 " high x 17.6"

  • This picture is not meant to be any particular tribe or nation, but the sentiment it represents has been faced by many of the younger generations of Native Americans.

    A young woman riding bareback atop a hill looks down on the valley that has been her home. She holds a document in her hand - a diploma, a job offer, a certificate of marriage - that she knows will change her life forever and will take her away from the home of her people.

    An eagle is atop an old tree in the foreground of the picture ready to bring her prayers for help in her new life to the Creator. She hopes seeing the eagle will assure her prayers will be answered as is the eagle's symbolic purpose in most Native American cultures.

    This picture is framed with the set Southwestern Quiltables.

  • Edward S. Curtis captured the majesty of Native Americans on film. Fred has captured three of his photographs as thread paintings. Photographs can not do these designs justice as you will see these portraits come alive on your cloth as they stitch.
    Please note that these designs are available individually as well as in sets.

    All six of these designs are small children alone or with their mothers. All designs have been created from royalty free images of the work of Edward S. Curtis purchased from the United States Historical Archive. The original photos are of course all in sepia tones. I have tried to maintain this look while adding a small amount of color on each design. You could easily stitch these in sepia by substituting shades of brown for the few colors used.

  • No matter how civilized we become, the images of animals from our Western wilderness still elicit feelings of awe and mystery. Native Americans recognized their illusive power and included them in many of their myths and artwork. Their eyes seem to be looking at a world we can only glimpse as we are connected to a world of spirituality.

    These designs would be perfect for framing - they could be done in pairs or groupings. And of course their power is a welcome addition to our clothing and home decor.

  •  "We live in a world of symbols, but, unlike visible reality, the realm of fantasy allows the freedom of manipulation. Images in combination or juxtaposition, possibly antagonistic to each other, can be a wave of fresh air, open doors to new perceptions and offer fresh perspectives. This collection, by no means harsh in its use of images utilizes 4 images: a woman, dragon, flower, and a dove. I encourage you to let go, be open, explore images that have symbolic meaning for you and play with combinations not thought possible. Who knows what you will create." ...Fred

    Fred has included some design elements in this set so you can create your own designs. Use them alone, together or in combination with the first nine designs in this set.

  • Kokopelli is the first in a series of Scenic bowls. Our scenic bowls will either tell a story or depict a landscape. Here is Kokopelli - a magical character over 3000 years old. He has been known as trickster, fertility God, the loving spirit of the Earth and Humanity. Playing his flute he has also been known as the symbol of happiness and joy. My favorite description of Kokopelli is bringing Spring out of Winter. He comes and plays his flute for us, the sun comes out, the snow melts, and all things grow again. I cannot help but smile when seeing this little character playing his flute with his bag of seeds on his back.

  • Elemental and concise yet far more expressive and communicative than language symbols have been used in every culture in the world. Their ability to simplify and compress complex and abstract ideas or emotions into a penetrable concise image that once perceived reemerges and illuminates our understanding (blossoms into a flower within). In other words the thoughts behind the symbol become more comprehensible. It is this ability that has attracted man throughout history in his to desire to express and understand the world around him. For example the Kokopelli figure is one of the first symbolic figures to appear in the Americas. He is generally considered as a symbol of fertility carrying his bag of seeds and playing his flute throughout his travels. He has been called a Trickster. Another symbol, the Raven is also a trickster who stole the moon and placed it in the sky. The eagle is often considered the protector and carrier of spirits...Fred

  • The inverted crescent used in Squash Blossom necklaces originated in the Paleolithic period and is called *naja* by the Navajo. It represented the Phoenician goddess of fertility, Astarte. It was mentioned in the Book of Judges, adopted by the Moors as a bridle ornament and brought to the Americas by the Spanish. The Navajo chose it for their beautiful Squash blossom necklaces. This bowl is based on a necklace created in the 1920's by the first woman Zuni silversmith.

    The bowl comes in three sizes with it's matching doily. And you have a regular necklace design to use on matching items, or to adorn a black shirt as I am going to do.
