needlepoint heart

Let’s have some fun with creating and stitching a lovely small colourful heart pattern!

Since Christmas is later this month, this would make a fast project for gift giving. We’re featuring both red and green as colours in this pattern. I think it’s a great way to get into the holiday spirit!

How Was This Colourful Heart Stitched

Our heart is composed of a variety of stitches, many using Colour #187 in size 5 Perle cotton. A couple of stitches included in the design are a rice stitch and a Milanese stitch. The heart measures about 3-inches on an 18-count canvas. 

While the sample features leftover bits of threads in reds, you will also see purples and yellows. Perhaps you might like to add some great. Use up whatever threads you have!

This would be a fun project to celebrate the season. Perhaps a gift for a stitching friend or enlarge the design for a Hearts For Hospice.

Have fun with this pattern and let me know what you come up with!
