Watermelon Cross-stitch Pattern


Last Monday was National Watermelon Day.

I’m not sure who determines these National Days, but I’m quite certain people could hear me for miles yelling “NOOOOOOOOOO” as I saw all the very cute watermelon pictures pop up on Instagram.

Why the Insta-freakout?

I was confronted with the sad reality that this post that was scheduled for today would be a week too late for National Watermelon Day.

It’s not the end of the world, but it would’ve been pretty cool to have this cute watermelon cross-stitch project coincide with such a delicious “holiday”.

The good news is there are plenty of summer days left which means plenty of days to enjoy this juicy treat.

Follow the pattern to stitch your own personal slice of watermelon. I used two-ply thread and finished the “seeds” with French knots.

I’m a girl that likes instant gratification and this design can be stitched in an hour or two.

I added this tasty art to a mason jar filled with homemade pickled watermelon rind which would make for a great hostess gift to take to your next neighborhood barbecue.

And if pickled watermelon rind isn’t your thing, I love the idea of filling the jar with gummy watermelon candies too.

      Thanks Ruthie! I love cross-stitch… especially quick little ones that you can whip up quickly. I’m all about the instant gratification. 🙂

      And thank you for your kind words about my photography. It has been a serious labor of love for and I’m finally getting to place where I’m excited about what I’m capturing. Now to go back and update the photography on some of my older posts… There is a serious “woof” factor in some of those pics that needs to be resolved.

      I hope you do! I have so many unfinished projects… I liked being able to start and complete something fun in one evening. Please let me know how it goes if you try it out.
