I have been posting a variety of heart patterns to hopefully inspire you for the Hearts for Hospice series. BUT today is all about a tiny heart.
This tiny heart measures about 2 ½ inches across. Dominique (yes, I have mentioned her many times previously) is a prolific stitcher in our group. She does not like idle hands so as a result, she is always stitching when she is relaxing. We are lucky to have her as she stitches many of the card inserts for get well cards within the guild. I always love to see what she comes up with.
This heart was stitched as a card insert hence the reason it is “tiny” in comparison with the other hearts I have been showing of late.
Dominique used a variety of very common stitches. There are tiny waffle stitches, gobelin, scotch and sprat’s head. You can find all of these by typing the name into google. Lots of charts are out there – just look.
It is stitched on 18 count mono canvas in a creamy orange colour. She used a variety of bits of left over floss from previous projects. The following Colour Complements colours were used
So, have we given you some ideas for card inserts with “tiny hearts”. Just goes to show what you can create with those leftover bits of floss!
