1- Take the blue piece of fabric from the fat quarter set; this will be your background. Cut it so its 42x42cm, then lay it flat and place the embroidery hoop in the middle.
2- Take the yellow piece of fabric and cut out a piece 15x34cm, then cut a wavy line along the top edge. Place on top of the backing piece, using the embroidery hoop as a guide for placement.
3- Take the pink and white fabric and cut out: two squares 8x7cm, two triangle pieces 7.5x5x5cm, and two pieces 3x6cm. These make up the huts, roof, and doors. Place these onto the backing fabric.
4- Pin the secure all items in place and next using the embroidery thread sew around the edges of the pieces to secure.
5- Cut out a small triangle from the white fabric to make a small flag to go on the top of one of the huts. Sew around the edge using embroidery threads to secure.
6- Add detail to the yellow sand section using the two yellow embroidery threads and a running stitch and French knots.
7- Once completed cut around the edge of the hoop leaving a 7cm seam allowance.
8- Cast on using the thread and sew around 1cm from the edge of the fabric. Pull to tighten and sew to secure.
9- Take the felt and cut a circle with a 20cm diameter, and sew onto the back of the embroidery hoop.
10- Thread the piece of ribbon through the clasp at the top of the hoop and tie to make a loop.
