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!
