I have a sweet, summery project to share with you!
- Doodle Stitching: The Motif Collection by Aimee Ray (get it here!)
- Embroidery hoop
- Embroidery floss
- Fabric (I used gingham from Hobby Lobby)
DMC Floss Colors:
- 210 – purple
- 744 – yellow
- 893 – pink
- 964 – blue
This is the motif we will be using.
Print out the motif, and trace it with your Sharpie.
In the beginning, I wasn’t going to stitch the cherry. Later on, I decided I wanted it, so I added it in. It’s up to you!
Using your pencil, trace the design onto your fabric.
We’re going to start with our yellow thread and Back Stitch the cone.
Since our design is so small, I decided to use smaller stitches.
If I ever stitch this design again, I’m going to make the stitches intersect instead of overlap on the body of the cone. I’m not a fan of how jumbled this looks.Now, we stitch the ice cream!
You can switch the ice cream colors if you’d like!
Two of the same colored scoops would look adorable, or you could add an extra scoop or two!
We’re going to Satin Stitch the cherry, but first, we need to Back Stitch the outline.
Now, Satin Stitch over your outline.
My cherry ended up more of an oval than a circle. Whoopsie!
Add a little, curved stem to the cherry.
Our ice cream cone is complete!
Isn’t it adorable?!
A perfect summer craft!
