STARRY SKIES

This bright and colorful pattern takes us back to summer nights under the stars!

PATTERN DETAILS: The design features fireflies, stars, trees, and a tent. The text reads, "Starry Skies and Fireflies." It is stitched on navy with vibrant shades of red, green, brown, aqua, yellow, and gray. I used threads from DMC, Weeks Dye Works and Classic Colorworks to get the look on the model. The model was stitched on 16ct Navy aida from Zweigart. The stitch count is 78w x 73h, which stitches up to be about 4 3/4"w x 4 1/2"h on that fabric.

WHERE TO BUY:

This design is available in the Cherry Hill Stitchery Etsy shop, here. It will also be available at select retailers. The complete list of authorized shops can be found here.

RECREATE THE LOOK:

Fabric - The red and white plaid finish fabric is Riviera Check from Andover Fabric, Patt 9092.


Cording - I used 5mm jute twine instead of cording on this piece. Most craft/fabric stores carry something similar, and you generally can find it by the ribbon.



Bow - The brown ribbon is a 2" wire-edged jute ribbon from Hobby Lobby. The SKU is 809780.


The navy blue ribbon is also a Hobby Lobby find. It is 3/8" double-sided satin ribbon, and the SKU is 174573.

The centerpiece is a size 36 covered button (7/8") from Dritz that I covered with the same red check fabric listed above. I used Fray Check to seal the tails.

The materials listed above are unique to this piece. The foundational supplies (the board, glue, batting, etc--stuff you can't see) are the same no matter what I am finishing, so I buy those in bulk and keep them on hand. You can see what those materials are on the Tools and Organization page, and can find directions on how to assemble everything together on the Tutorials page on this website. It is a bit of a process, so I broke the videos down into sequential bite-sized pieces for you. I'm always happy to answer questions if you get stuck along the way! One more time, here is how it all looks together:

Happy Stitching!
