Stitch a Little Taste of Summer

I think the sun is finally starting to make an appearance this summer and to welcome it why not stitch a little taste of summer?


The lollies and ice creams have been stitched in seed beads using white sewing thread and half cross-stitch on 12hpi beading canvas. The sky blue background has then been filled in continental stitch and all six strands of the embroidery floss.

The finished size of these little projects is only 2.5cm x 3.5cm, so they can be completed in a flash.


The design could just as easily be stitched on Aida or even in wools on a tapestry canvas, just hunt through your stash and use whatever takes your fancy. A single lolly can make a unique gift card or framed in a brooch setting. Several in embroidery floss could make a jolly border to a towel or pillow case.
