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 there’s no picture it is because I didn’t hear back with permission to use it, but click through to check it out! Please don’t pin individual photos from this post, use the long collage at the bottom.
I also have a list of Valentine’s Day cross stitch patterns, if you are a versatile crafter!
