Happy Camper Cross Stitch Along - The Jolly Jabber Quilting Blog

Happy Camper Cross Stitch Along

We can’t wait to get started with this fun new cross stitch pattern by Lori Holt of A Bee in my Bonnet called Happy Camper.

Because we know you’re going to want one of these for your sewing room, Kimberly is starting a 7-week cross stitch along with the Happy Camper pattern on Wednesday, August 14. Every Wednesday from August 14 – September 25, Kimberly will be giving her tips and tricks to making this beginner-friendly cross stitch pattern during her weekly Flosstube. We will also be giving away prizes each week so be sure to read to the bottom to see how to enter!

Lori Holt finished her cross stitch with hints of aqua and a rustic barn wood frame. Sew cute!

The Happy Camper Cross Stitch pattern has a stitch count of 109 wide x 84 high, and we stitched our sample on 25 Count Lugana. However, you can choose a cloth count and type that works for you.

The counted cross stitch pattern comes with full-color instructions, diagrams and supply list, including suggested DMC and AuriFloss colors. It is printed on durable 11” x 17” cardstock.

Happy Stitching!


    1. Hi…I love the Happy Camper design in cross stitch…so cute! I will be stitching it soon! I am 58 yrs. old, but have been cross stitching since I was 16. I have loved stitching many designs over the years…small and larger projects…some are framed and others are ornaments for Christmas, Halloween, Easter and other occasions.

      1. So glad you’re joining us! Cross stitch is so wonderful for decorating our homes for the seasons.

  1. Wow!!! Adorable! My friends are hauling their little camper around to Alaska this summer! Could I buy this pattern or kit? I would love to make this for them by Christmastime!!!

  2. I just ordered the pattern and cloth. My question is about posting our progress, if Kimberly does the video on Aug 14, how can we post the next day, starting with August 13? I am new to counted, this will be my first.

    1. Thank you so much for pointing that out! I meant to put Aug 20. Now it’s correct 🙂
