Pomegranate Collection patterns are designs which I have not stitched a sample yet for the cover image, but I just couldn't wait to share this design! So, these are less expensive and only available as downloads (not kits or patterns). If you stitch a Pomegranate Collection pattern and submit it for photography, you'll receive a $50 Avlea website credit (and you get your embroidery back, too!). 


“Astra” means star in Greek and this delicate allover design features an intricate primary star motif that alternates with a smaller secondary star motif. Worked in a warm palette of deep teal, red copper, golden olive and two shades of green, it can be easily adapted to smaller or larger embroideries.

A few words about this design: I haven't stitch-tested these colors yet, but they looked really great when I put all the cones together. You may choose to work this design with slightly different colors based upon your personal preference.
