Has it been toasty in your part of the country? It has been sooo hot here this week! I think Summer is on it’s way. So around here that means it’s time to change out the Spring décor for a little Summer fun! This sweet “Bring on the Sunshine” Summer embroidery hoop art is so easy to make and a perfect way to add a little Summer style to your home!
Supplies needed to make your own summer embroidery hoop art:
- 5.5 x 9 inch Oval Wood Embroidery Hoop
- Wired Linen Flowers
- Pearlescent Watercolor Paint Set
- Embroidery Floss
- Disappearing Ink Pen
- Fabric (for background and wrapping hoop)
- Paint Brush
- Hot Glue
Begin by separating the linen flowers.
Place your background fabric in the embroidery hoop. Use a disappearing ink marker and write out your phrase. I wanted mine to have a handwritten look, but you could also choose a font you like and print out the phrase and trace it onto your fabric.
Outline all your letters with a backstitch. If you need a tutorial for that, there is one on my blog on the Embroidery Tips page!
Place the fabric in the embroidery hoop, making sure the fabric is tight and the stems of the flowers are straight. Trim the fabric all the way around and glue the fabric to the inside of the hoop. Trim the stems of the flowers (using utility scissors or wire cutters) and fold the stems to the inside.

Bev’s little corner of the internet is Flamingo Toes. She grew up in a creative family of artists and seamstresses so it is no surprise that she loves to create. Bev began sewing as a teenager and made her own clothes and room décor even then. That love for DIY, crafting, and sewing has grown to include jewelry making, furniture refinishing and anything else she can learn. Her style could probably be described best as a mix between modern and vintage – she loves taking old styles and making them new and fun again. Bev is currently living in gorgeous Carlsbad, CA with her husband, two teenagers, and two cats, which are often more trouble than the two teenagers.
