printable // you are loved stitchable valentine
Want to make a quick and easy handmade Valentine? I designed this printable so you can use it as a stitching card or leave it just as it is for an even faster last-minute card.
Stitched or not, it doubles as a Valentine or as a simple bit of art. Because we all need a reminder that we're loved, right?
To make the stitched version, you will need:
Embroidery floss or size 8 perle cotton
YOU ARE LOVED STITCHABLE VALENTINE PDF
Print the PDF on card stock and cut out the rectangles.
Use a needle to poke a hole at each end of the dashed line on the heart. For the flowers, poke a hole in the center of each flower and at the curve of each petal.
Embroider over the flowers with lazy daisy stitches and matching thread. As you tack each petal down, come up and go back down through the same pre-punched hole. Stitch around the heart with running stitch.
I used size 8 perle cotton for mine. I also usually just make a large knot on the back (big enough that it doesn't accidentally pull through the hole), but you can hold the ends in place with tape if you'd rather.
Now you have a handmade Valentine that's also some fun art to hang on the fridge or tack up on the wall!
Happy Hearts Day!
