Summer Time!

Hello Friends!

Today I'm featuring this new "Summer" FFO featuring one of the patterns in Lizzie Kate's Summer Smalls. It was a quick, fun stitch that sat on my finishing desk for weeks while I figured out what to do with it.

I ultimately decided to use a simple wood pallet that I painted and dry-brushed antique white. My favorite thing about this FFO is definitely that backing fabric. On a shopping trip a few months ago, I randomly a package of K&Co's adhesive fabric samples and I had been dying to try them ever since. I've worked with K&Co for years and never heard of this product, and my recent Google searches have proven this may have been a test product some years back because its as though it never existed.  The package came with four different pattern samples, with one of them being perfect for this stitch.  Now that I've used it, I really wish I could find more because it made finishing this piece so much easier!

The stitched piece is mounted to the coordinating K&Co fabric, and then both are mounted to the wood pallet. White cording edges the stitched piece and then I added a small white bow with a floral center. Super cute finish for the summer!

Super finish, Alissa! Where do you get your wood pallets or do you make them yourself? Enjoy your day!
