SoInLove EveryDay.

“He is your field which you sow with love and reap with thanksgiving.”- Kahlil Gibran

So in love.

That’s me.  Utterly.  Completely.  Divinely.

Sow in love.

Planting seeds.  Patiently awaiting the first bloom.  Envisioning the wonder of spring.

Sew in love.

I’m a big fan of Valentine’s Day.  There, I said it.  And there are few things sweeter than a handmade Valentine.

Embroidered Heart Valentines

Materials-

card stock & envelopes, I used 4 Bar size

embroidery thread

embroidery needle

scissors

*optional add-ons

washi tape, glitter, stamps, ribbons, etc.

 

This is a true DIY.  You can go wherever your wild heart leads you.  Hearts, Be Mine, words of LOVE, XOXO…….let loose!

A few suggestions to assist in execution- the card stock needs to be the right thickness.  I got flat 4 bar cards at Paper Source and they worked beautifully- just the right structure, no creases and no breaks.  I also used a larger embroidery needle (think the big guy in the middle of the mixed set.)

I sewed my hearts free hand, since I like the imperfect nature of the form…..much like our own hearts.  🙂 But feel free to lightly pencil in an outline and erase after sewing.  A simple running stitch does the trick- A.K.A. up and down and up and down through the paper.  Small knots on each end fasten the thread in place.

Each card only takes a few minutes and each one is a unique expression for your valentine.
