Embroidered “Knit” Heart on Good Knits:The internet is filled with hearts, so I’ve got even more heart-shaped inspiration for you today!

This Embroidered “Knit” Heart Tutorial comes to you from Lisa on goodknits. Lisa show you how to create a beautiful knitted look with paper, thread, and yarn. I’d love to try this technique with our Color variations floss for an ombré look!

Rainbow Cross Stitch Heart Pattern on Rainbow Cross Stitch Heart Pattern is a lovely free pattern by Keera on Live Love Sew. This colorful pattern features a beautiful selection of DMC embroidery floss, and is a quick and satisfying stitch.

I think this would look gorgeous on a hand-embroidered Valentine for someone special!


Heart Bookmark Pals on Wake and WhimsyThese sweet Felt Bookmark Pals were found on Wake and Whimsy – another quick and lovely stitch with floss and felt for an ingenious bookmark. Alicia shares more inspiring ideas – including an adorable fox.

They’re an adorable way to hide a few sweet messages to a loved one in their favorite reading material!

Confetti-Filled Hearts on Tuts+These Confetti-Filled Hearts on Tuts+ are a sweet combination of tracing paper, confetti, and thread.

Or, you could use the same idea with pastel shades of felt for the hearts and bright colors of DMC embroidery floss to make your own personalized conversation hearts!


Paper Heart Valentine Pockets on Cosmo CricketThese Paper Heart Valentine Pockets on Cosmo Cricket are so elegant and inspiring – bits of patterned cardstock with sweet fortune-cookie like messages inside.

I would add some stitched elements to my paper hearts before finishing, to make them extra special!

    I saw that “knit” heart this week and thought it was a terrific idea! And the idea of using verigated floss is a great idea! That little heart is so pretty too!
