We used our wool blend felt in light peach, ruby, cherry, and juniper to capture the yummy flavors of summer but feel free to make this creation your own. Don’t like Swiss? No problem.

Skill level: Beginner-intermediate.

Crafting Tip: Most of the elements of the sandwich are “flat,” making it ideal for learning basic embroidery stitches. 

Stitches used: Blanket, whip, double-running, detached chain stitch. Need more guidance on these stitches? Check out our free embroidery guide or take our Embroidery 101 course.
