It's now officially summer and things are heating up here on the east coast. The humidity has set in and the insulated drink tumblers have come out. I decided to draft and develop a drink cozy pattern for my 30 ounce Yeti tumbler.
I am so excited that I created this pattern! I made a few different versions, but my favorite incorporates the "Star Bowler" pattern by Kathleen Berlew featured in Just CrossStitch Magazine's June 2020 issue. Loving all things bright and mid century, I was immediately drawn to this chart. I only stitched the top part of the pattern. I stitched it up on a 14 count Aida black fabric using Sulky 12 weight cotton thread. I am so happy with the results.
I highly recommend stitching with Sulky 12wt cotton thread. Here are the Sulky colors I used in for the "Star Bowler" thread conversion: 1188, 1834, 1024, 1095, 1071, 1039, 1226, 1328, and 0568.
Want to see this pattern and talk to me live as I make another drink cozy? Then set your calendars for Friday June 26th at 2 pm eastern time. I will be hosting a Facebook Live event over on the Just CrossStitch Facebook page. I will be going live to talk about how you can add cross stitch pieces to your summer accessories. Want to sew this pattern? It is available here.
