Get Ready for Summer with SUMMER VIBES!

I don’t know about you all, but I am ready for the snow to melt so I can get out my shorts and flip-flops again! But winter is still hanging on here in North Iowa, so I have had to content myself with warm thoughts and stitching these summer-themed designs.

#217 SUMMER VIBES is a set of 3 easy and quick-to-stitch designs that will add a bit of fun and whimsy to your summer decor. All of these patterns are suitable for a beginner and stitch up fast, so they make great in-between projects between larger or more complicated ones. They are stitched on Week’s Morris Blue linen with Classic Colorworks floss. If you’re not quite comfortable stitching on linen, they can also be easily stitched on a 14ct Aida and I always include DMC alternates with my patterns. WELCOME SUMMER features three cute buttons from Just Another Button Company.

The E-pattern version is available in my Waxing Moon Etsy shop: SUMMER VIBES E-PATTERN It is a 6 page PDF file that contains a color picture, supply list, black & white charts, color charts, and stitching instructions. The file is optimized for high quality printing on a home printer. You simply open it, print, and you’re ready to start your project! I’ve had people inquire if my E-Patterns are compatible with the Pattern Keeper app. They are PDF format, so yes, they are compatible.

The printed SUMMER VIBES leaflets will be available in needlework shops this week, so visit, call or email your favorite shop to get your copy.
