WANT TO GIVE A THOUGHTFUL, HANDMADE VALENTINE THIS YEAR?  WHY NOT TRY A SIMPLE CROSS-STITCH DESIGN!

Send your favourite Valentine some love hearts with this simple counted cross-stitch pattern!  Love Hearts is quick and easy to stitch, but who doesn’t love giving (and getting) a handmade gift for any occasion.

This design is a nice small size, making it perfect for a card, the front of a small pillow, or on a display backing for your shelves or tiered trays!

Let’s take a closer look!

Materials and Tools

This pattern requires the following materials. 

Fabric: This pattern was designed using 14-count Aida as the fabric.  Choose your favourite colour, but remember that the white stitches won’t show well on white fabric!

    • DMC BLANC – White
    • DMC 326 – Rose very deep
    • DMC 151 – Dusty Rose very light
