True romance... or heart shapes for any occasion

9th Jan 2014

Heart shapes are always on trend – not just for Valentine's day!  These simple shapes make a wonderful colourful wall art display. You can find these hearts in the February edition of Cross Stitcher. Here each heart has been stitched onto white perforated paper and mounted into  a box frame using 3D foam tape. Equally  the shapes can be stitched directly onto a square of white 14 count Aida or 28 count white linen if preferred.

Why not stitch some for lavender sachets - perfect for keeping moths at bay.

But also look out in this edition for the FREE floral keyring , full of fresh, bright colours, this cute wooden keyring comes with everything needed to complete the heart. Find this in issue 275
