Today’s free pattern from DMC is this miniature collage made using a 3×3-inch canvas, DMC Embroidery Floss, colored pencils, a key charm and some lace scraps. The complete materials list is included in the pattern.
This little collage works up quickly and would make a terrific Valentine’s Day gift. Make one, or make an entire batch!
To make the collage, download the free pattern and transfer the design to the center of the canvas using a regular pencil.
Using all 6 strands of 913, embroider the square around the heart in running stitch. Using all 6 strands of 957, embroider the heart in back stitch.
Erase any trace of pencil markings. Lightly fill in the areas of the canvas with color, using the colored pencils and a circular motion.
Glue the key to the center of the heart. Glue lace trim around the outside edges of the canvas.
