Valentine's Day is fast approaching and Hearts are everywhere in our local stores. So in honor of that upcoming day, I am releasing a brand new simple Fringe Heart Embroidery design.
I really like quick and easy designs for those last minutes projects and this one will most certainly fit that description. In a short time, you can put this on pillows, T-Shirts, quilts or anywhere you want to spread some love.
I used a variegated thread on my sample so you could see that by making a unique thread choice, you will have a lot of options to use this design; not just for Valentines Day, but for other occasions. Moms, Dads, Grandparents and Kids are happy to receive some love. The inside is blank so you can customize it with your own text.
The design stitches out with a wide satin and you can see the inner zig zag stitching also. This is important because you have to have something to hold those long threads in place for your upcoming trimming.
When you are ready to create the fringe, flip the hoop over and slide a small pair of scissors underneath the bobbin threads. Carefully snip those and the long fringe threads will be released.
Here is everything trimmed away and ready to turn over. Keeping the design in your hoop during this part will make it easier to trim as the hoop keeps it taut.
Then use a blunt object or your fingernail to gently pull the fringe to the front of the hoop. It's that easy.
