Some months ago, I was listening to the song Your Scarf from Noel Stephen and the Darlings. (Go visit them...the album is awesome and free!) At the end of the song are some lyrics that jumped out and said, "Embroider Me! You must! Please!!!!" At last, I've granted the request, and have embroidered the phrase "You Stitched Up My Heart".
It's a quick stitch and just in time for Valentine's Day. But really, something this sweet could be stitched up any time...especially if you're an embroiderer wishing to tell the one you love how you feel. But even if you're a single girl (or guy!) like me, this was so lovely to stitch.
The little details are my favorite parts. I was going for a classic sampler kind of look.
The colors are used were DMC 503, 3688, 351, and color variations 4070 and 4075. Fresh and springy...
I can't keep this pattern all to myself, so download the PDF below and stitch it up for your someone special! In my case, consider this embroidery a tribute to all of you, my dear readers...You Stitched Up My Heart!
When you've had a chance to embroider this (or any of my patterns!), I'd love to see it! Put a link in the comments, or add your photo to the Flickr group...I may feature it in a future post!
