A little freebie for the month of February and seeing as Valentines Day is just around the corner, I thought I would share this one. Its a pretty simple design and won't take up too much of your time.
Sized for a 5inch hoop, but you can resize on your computer to suit yourself.
As you can see from the pictures, I used some pretty coloured fabric and and a contrasting thread. Try using 3 strands or 6 strands for a chunkier look. You can stitch the outline as I have below, just follow the lines on the picture and work your way around the shape, using straight stich. Keep your fabric nice and taut throughout as you don't want these stitches to sag.
If you want something a little more challenging, then try filling in each section with satin stitch, one way to practise it !
If you do try out this pattern, please share and tag me on Instagram @themessybrunette, Id love to see your work and share.
