Introduction

These fresh designs by artist Jennie Baer are all about getting you into the world of fabric art—fast! Follow the simple directions to transfer a pattern onto fabric, then use basic stitches and easy embellishments to finish textile beauty that's very new, very you.

While we are at it, why don't we make your creative experience even sweeter? We're including three different sizes for each of these 12 designs, so you don't have to worry about enlarging or reducing them for your project. Just "choose and use." To see which size patterns were used for the photography models, check the supply lists included with the projects. The key to creating modern/primitive are is truly in your hands!

About the Designer

For Jennie Baer, designing is all about being open to new ideas.

"I've been an artist for as long as I can remember," says the Illinois resident, "however, I have only been designing embroidery patterns for about two years now. That started when I saw a friend embroidering a primitive pattern, and I thought 'I can do that.' So I started making my own patterns."

Jennie's creative nature is a family trait. Her father writes science fiction novels, while her mother design quilts, Jennie's creative outlet is drawing, and most of her patterns are fashioned using this traditional method. Yet she's also been known to start with an oil painting in order to arrive at her final design."I have found that anything can be a primitive embroidery pattern. That's because anything can translate into a simple line drawing. I've also learned that you must not be hard on yourself about your work as an artist or as an embroiderer. You can't predict what will turn out best, and sometimes the design that pleased you the least is the one that everyone else loves."

"As my designs began to accumulate, I created Homeberries.com as a place to share them with a larger audience. It's been fun to see how the 'Prim' trend is exploding It's everywhere. Once my Website was up and running, I realized it was time to contact Leisure Arts to see if they would be interested in publishing some of my designs."

And the rest, as they say, is Primitive history.
