{Free} Valentine’s Day Hand Embroidery Pattern

Valentines Day Embroidery

 

I had planned to have a finished Valentine’s Day Hand Embroidery piece to share with you today, but back to school has been business than I had anticipated. So instead I’ve just got the pattern to share with you.

You can download the full size pattern here. 

I’m hoping to share the finished one with you all next week!

But some background to this is that the husband and I aren’t sharing bought gifts this year for Valentine’s Day so I spent a few days thinking about what I could give him instead and then I seen this quote on a card in an Emily McDowell’s Etsy store and thought it would be perfect on a pillow case for B!

Don’t forget to let me know if you use the pattern and if you need any stitching advice please don’t hesitate to ask.

Happy Stitching.

Finally figuring out wet felting

aswc-wet-felting-1

Many many years ago, I saw someone share an image of a wet-felted-needle-felted block of soap. The bar of soap was wet felted, then a picture had been needle-felted to the front. It has stayed in my mind ever since as something that I wanted to try. After a bit of research (this was pre-Pinterest […]
