I’ve lived at the seaside for most of my life and will always have a soft spot for all the things you find at a British beach. If you’re looking for a summer craft project, these patterns and kits from Etsy makers are all super cute with cross stitch, embroidery, sewing and crochet to choose from.
This Seaside Love cross stitch pattern by Stitchrovia has everything that’s great about a beach day and is sure to make you nostalgic for childhood holidays. There’s quite a few other summer/beach patterns in the shop too.
Rows of colourful beach huts always make for a pretty photo and now you can make your own with this sewing pattern by Thimble Wood. It’s not just a cute decoration either as it has space inside for all your sewing tools and supplies – plus a sneaky little seagull! Choose from a digital pattern, printed pattern or full kit (UK).
Seagulls aren’t so fun in real life but they do look cute in crafts and I love the geometric style of this seaside cross stitch pattern by Bees On Toast Shop with little boats, ice creams and suns too.
Instead of bringing home more seashells, make your own with this super cute crochet pattern by One Dog Woof.
While you’re unlikely to spot all these sea creatures at a British beach, they make for a very kawaii group of friends. I especially love the grumpy crab! Get the sewing pattern set from Pandelza, who have lots more animal patterns too.
