When you cant get to the beach, bring the beach huts to you!
I received some lovely fabric from The Craft Cotton Company – the ‘Under The Sea’ fat quarter set and after singing the ‘under the sea’ song from little mermaid in my head for about 20minutes I suddenly had an idea on what the fabric would be perfect for. I love seeing all the different coloured beach huts along the seafront in summer, and since I can’t always get to the beach I decided it was time I brought a beach hut inside, now a full size one maybe a little difficult but a smaller one would be easy – so I started on a beach hut theme applique embroidery hoop, so that i can always see a little of the seaside when I look at it.
Once I had added the applique details I also added some embroidered details to bring it a bit more to life.
The tutorial for this is available over on The Craft Cotton Company Blog.
