The latest fad in holiday gatherings for the last few years has been Ugly Christmas Sweater parties! There are contests to see who is wearing the ugliest holiday sweater, and boy, there are some doozies. We wanted to create our own ugly sweaters, and had a big art meeting to figure out how to do it. Believe it or not, this was a tough collection to design. At Anita Goodesign, we are so used to creating beautiful embroidery designs that it was daunting to design something intentionally ugly. Then we had the idea to create a series of designs and borders that, by themselves, are actually quite nice, but, when combined together with embellishments and trims, they turn out, well, rather ugly. There are Christmas unicorns, elves, snowmen, and other Christmas favorites. You will have a lot of fun with these designs. Since the designs are actually beautiful, you do not have to create an ugly sweater, you can create a nice one. I have only one question: I wonder if the first ugly Christmas sweater was done on purpose?
45 different designs in two sizes each (hoop sizes range from 5″ x 7″ to 8″ x 12″).
