Share the Love: Stitch Up Some Romance!

The season of love is upon us and we have plenty of romantic embroidery projects!

Valentine’s Day is just three weeks away. That leaves plenty of time to turn needle and thread into a lovely gift for someone special.

Paris: City of Love

The city of love is a popular example of romance. Stitch up a pretty French Postal Stamp Cushion from Oh Sew New. It can commemorate a honeymoon, special trip, or an item on your bucket list.

The Paris Chic Handbag from Enchanting Designs is perfect for a trip or simply to reminisce.

Elegant Fonts

The Heirloom Alphabet from Artistic Designs just screams romance. You could even replace the circle dots with pearls for an elegant touch. It is especially beautiful in a frame like this project, stitched on antique linens. You can get monogram tips here.

The Flowing Font from Stitch Delight is particularly elegant. It is easy to read in text and can be used for single- and triple-letter monograms as well.

Crazy in Love

Heirloom crazy quilting is one of the time-honored traditions popular in Victorian times. Much easier to stitch by machine than it was by hand, exquisite details come alive in Romantic Crazy Quilt 14 from Graceful Embroidery.

Live and Love from Kreative Kiwi combines stitch and applique fonts in three sizes from 6×10 to 8×10. Crazy quilt construction adds a touch of heirloom to the mantra.

Love Letters

Make everything from a LOVE table runner to a pillow, wall hanging, or a full-sized quilt with Romantic Quilt Blocks from Allstitch.

My Heart, My Love from Kreations by Kara is a clever arrangement of love in all colors, shapes, and sizes. It really pops on black and would look classy on a shirt.

Say it with Lace

You can hardly think of romance without also thinking about lace. Maybe that is also because lace holds deep Victorian origins. Broderie Anglaise Lace Edgings from Embroidery Weekly is the essence of heirloom embroidery with bullion roses, delicate edging, and guides for ribbon insertion.

There is nothing like freestanding lace and Ace Points Embroidery combines delicate lace with pretty accents in Golden Hearts.

Enter With a Loving Heart

You can also create welcoming door decor. The Chickadee and Blossom Wreath from Ananda’s Divine Designs is so pretty, you can leave it up all through spring.

Many of these designs are on sale, so go stitch up a bunch of love!
