This stitchery is part of my Monthly Camper Embroidery Series. Included are photos and directions for embroidering the July Camper trailer and directions for finishing it into Hoop Art. The July design reflects summer and our Patriotic Holiday. Planters filled with summer flowers. A holiday banner hangs on the vintage trailer, and there are flags here and there to represent our pride and patriotism in our country. Fun and easy to stitch!
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.
****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.
Perfect for a beginner or someone wanting a quick embroidery project.

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!
