January Vintage Camper Trailer Embroidery - 12 month series
This is the first in my Monthly Camper Embroidery Series. Included are photos and directions for embroidering the January Camper and directions for finishing it into Hoop Art. The January design reflects the chilly weather. There is a hutch outside the front door with a little pine tree on it, snow skis, a lantern by the door, an old rocker with a warm fringe throw over the back, and little accessories as well. There is also a little snow that has settled over the tops of the windows, door, and chest of drawers.
****I will also provide directions for creating a Quilt using all 12 designs at the end of the series in the October and November patterns. It will be a simple wall or lap quilt. The embroidered designs are 5" across when embroidered. The finished quilt will be decorative in nature. I am finishing up the stitcheries and then making the quilt. It will be less than 30" x 40" when completed. I will edit this listing when the quilt is completed with all the designs and I have the exact measurements.
Everything in this series is meant to be simple. Simple to stitch, simple to complete. The design is the focus. There is a basic Backstitch that will be used that outlines the design using different shades of embroidery floss. DMC Embroidery floss is the floss I chose to use, it has a wide range of colors and is easily located in most fabric, craft and sewing stores.
This embroidery series is very well thought out and brings back delightful memories to me. Each month’s pattern will reflect the basic Vintage trailer/camper and the outdoor decor and accessories that reflect that month. I hope this will bring enjoyment as it is stitched. Each month will have basic embroidery stitches, nothing too difficult and the design will take center stage! At the end of this Embroidery series, directions will be provided in the October and November Pattern for making the 12 Month Camper quilt using all 12 Embroidered Campers. The December Camper Embroidery is already complete and is provided early on so that the quilt can be completed before the busy Holidays arrive.

I am a professional pattern designer, seamstress and miniature maker. As a little girl my parents gave me little toys and sewing projects to keep me quiet in church! Those interests turned into skills, and in my later life turned into a wonderful thriving business! My goal in making patterns is to make them as simple as possible, while using the prettiest fabric. Putting the two together hopefully results in a wonderful finished product or item!
