Floral hearts remain one of my favourite designs to stitch. I like to choose the colour palette first and make up the designs as I go along, adding different blooms here and there as I fancy. A floral heart is my most popular commission design too; they can be so easily personalised with a date, initials or name inside or around the heart. With this in mind I thought it would be nice to create a floral heart that beginners can tackle easily - I hope that you enjoy stitching it as much as I do.
The kit includes a 10” square piece of hand-printed antique linen together with the threads and instructions required to complete the pattern. The finished heart is approx 3.5” at both of its widest points. I have a series of youtube tutorials to share the basic stitches and there are short films to accompany each kit.
It is important to me that packaging and storage for my work is beautiful as well as functional. Kits from The Sitchery are packed in beautiful, sturdy, textured card folders that close with a hand-dyed silk ribbon. This means that they make lovely gifts as well as providing a home for your work in between stitching sessions.
