Fine Beadwork Embroidery Kits
I am married to an engineer and they are not generally know for romantic gestures but occassionally he will bring me a tiny packet of Love Hearts home from the office. So this Valentines I thought a stitched sweet would make a lovely card.
The lettering and outer edge of the sweet have been stitched in size 11 seed beads on 12hpi beading canvas. The pink centre and grey background have then been filled using a continental stitch and all six strands of the embroidery floss. The finished size of this example is approximately 8cm x 8cm.
The design could just as easily be stitched on Aida or even in wools on a tapestry canvas. A single sweet makes a fantastic card but several together, in different pastel shades with a range of messages could make a contemporary cushion or framed needlework.
The chart is free for personal use but please don't reproduce or use it commercially.
