Embroidered Valentine

So far I have shared two Valentine projects that can be found here and here.

Today, I want to share a new one.

I guess I have been on a bit of an embroidery kick this week.  First, I shared my love for a towel that was embroidered and then I shared a beautiful vintage embroidered treasure that I found.

Let me clarify that this was done in a very basic manner – anyone can do this!

When I say that this is embroidered, I mean in the sense that there was fabric, a needle, an embroidery hoop and embroidery thread involved – that is it.

I have been pinning lots of embroidery ideas because it is something I want to learn to do in the near future.

Here are the steps:

Spray paint the embroidery hoop.

Place your fabric in the hoop.  I bought a couple of quilting samples that were already cut for simplicity.  Be sure to pull the fabric really tight.

Use fabric glue to attach the ric rac trim.

Use a template to cut out equal size triangles.

Use a basic in and out stitch to attach the triangles.

Attach owl with fabric glue.

I found him last year at a craft store – no idea where,  but I am sure similar ones could easily be found.

Easy. Peasy. Done.

I will be sharing at the Decor Chick’s Valentine Party, stop on by

And remember:

I will “Owl” ways love you!

Have a great day!

  1. Cute…but this is not embroidering, it is in an embroidery hoop. The method by which the little flags are sewn on is call applique.
