With all the Christmas decor packed away, I’m thinking of the next fun holiday to break up the winter chill. Needlework goes hand in hand with warm blankets and cold nights, so I thought I’d round up some ideas of what to embroidery and cross stitch for Valentine’s Day! There are a bunch of independent designer’s Valentine’s Day embroidery designs and then a few freebies at the end of the list. I can see lots of these stitched and hanging on a wall, or added to a shirt, sewn on to a pillow, the possibilities are endless.
If you’re intimidated by the idea of how to transfer an embroidery design, check out the easiest way to transfer embroidery patterns; it is so simple and involves no tracing! You can check out past embroidery projects that I’ve stitched, here.
