NEW Pattern Set and SAL!

By January 6, 2012

Follow me on:

New this week is this pattern featuring a set of Paisley Heart Valentines to stitch.

Work the 3-piece set of free patterns for Valentine's Day. Each design features a different motif that can be worked in traditional redwork embroidery, or stitch it in your favorite color combination.

The motifs can be finished as ornaments and would make perfect Valentine's Day gifts for your stitching friends.

I've started stitching these motifs myself, and my progress will be posted here on the blog in just a few days.

I'm using a variegated DMC Embroidery Floss in color #115 in basic embroidery stitches including stem stitch for thicker lines, back stitch for thinner lines, detached chain stitch for the leaves, Parisian stitch or blanket stitch for the inside areas of the paisley motifs and French knots for small dots (seed beads can be used here as well).

Choose your colors and stitches and join me in a Stitch-Along (SAL)!
