Life is Better at the Beach: Fun Summer Embroidery

Hot summer days mean that beach time is near. Stitch up some festive beach-themed items, including an adorable way to showcase your sea shells and beach glass!

Customize everybody’s beach towel with one of these cute Under the Sea Applique designs from Embroider Shoppe. It will be easy to figure out whose towel is whose with nine different designs from which to choose.

You could also add a single letter monogram, like the Redwork Beach Alphabet from Mimis Sewing Studio.

If you can’t get to the beach this year, how about a staycation? Stitch up a Large Seashell Applique from Kreative Kiwi. They are so pretty, especially if you add some shells, decorative soaps, or a scented candle. See how easy the technique is to stitch here.

These light designs, like Beach Time from Ace Points Embroidery, stitch up fast. Grab a piece of textured fabric and a beach-themed frame for wall art that will have you making umbrella drinks.

You can’t go to the beach without an appropriate tote. If you don’t have time to make one, buy a ready-made bag and add your own embroidery. Summer Holidays from AllStitch fits the occasion perfectly.

Need a beach blanket? Purchase a solid color blanket and add Beach Time scenes from Sweet Heirloom Embroidery. Light and fast to stitch, you can make the back of the blanket look pretty, too, by trying this technique.

This is an adorable way to showcase some of the shells, sea glass, stones, and sand collected on your trip. Or, add decorative buttons. The Vinyl Glass Fish Bowl from Hatched in Africa is stitched as a freestanding applique and includes two eyelets for hanging on the wall or in a window.
