Are you looking for a little project to complete over the summer? Then look no further! I have a collection of embroidery patterns, kits, and tutorials perfect for the season with flowers, butterflies, bees and more.
If you just want to practice some simple stitches, then this bumblebee embroidery tutorial from Crewel Ghoul would be great. You could stitch them over until you have a whole swarm…
If you want to try embroidering on something other than hoops, then try this lovely idea from River Birch Threads and embroider a row of flowers onto the back of a shirt. It’s a great way to breathe new life into something you don’t really wear anymore.
Do you have a little beach hut or perhaps dream of having one? This collection of mini nautical items from RoseStitchArt just represents summer seaside living. You can download the pattern or buy the whole kit with everything you need.
Koi fish really make me think of summer and wandering through peaceful sunny gardens, so this embroidery pattern from Maggie Jo’s Studio could be the perfect piece to make me feel just as relaxed at home instead.
I feel like the kitchen never gets enough artwork in it, so let’s change that and fill it with citrus vibes courtesy of a free pattern and guide from Love Crafts.
Can’t decide between flowers and butterflies, then do both! This floral butterfly design from Super Creative Embroidery makes it look like the butterfly has bloomed on one side.
