Free Summer Patterns

Wednesday, June 5, 2013

If you’re looking for a few fast, easy projects that you can take along and stitch nearly anwhere this summer, here are some suggestions.

Over at the JoAnn Fabric and Craft Stores‘ site you’ll find a pattern for these pretty Huck Embroidery towels. They’re easy to make using just straight stitches in cotton embroidery floss on monks cloth or Aida.

I love the varying shades of blues used in the embroidery. It reminds me of a cool, relxing swim in the pool!

You could also make a summer tote using the free Brenda’s Tote pattern from Bird Brain Designs shown to the left. It’s made using just a single color of embroidery floss and two tea towels embroidered with a fun, fancy bird.

It’s perfect for toting your projects along wherever you go, and large enough to be used as a beach bag.

Planning on doing a bit of sailing this summer?  Embroider your gear with these gorgeous free nautical patterns from French Knots featuring knots, anchors and a sailboat. Use just a single color of embroidery thread or multiple colors, and change the lettering to personalize the designs.

Happy Summer Stitching!

    I just used my very old huck towel I made years ago. It was so easy and fun just running the thread through the top threads on the fabric. Kind of free style but ended up with a lovely geometric pattern in reds.

    I make craft projects for the sick children at our local Hospital to keep them busy as they are recovering. This book would give our craft group ideas for new projects to make up for the children to make. I hope I will win a copy. Thank you
