Valentine’s Day

Posted by Carina Thavelin

The heart is one of my favorite shapes and has been my whole life. There are so many expressions with hearts and so many shapes and designs.

My latest crush is the anatomic heart, here is my perfect Valentine’s card

 

Above you can see an anatomic heart that I embroidered as a wedding gift recently. It is made in Cross Stitcher Software and I placed every cross “by hand” on the screen. It took a while but now I can embroider as many as I like. The mix of modern motif and traditional technique makes it stand out.

Do you want to embroider your own heart? Download the vp3-file here:

Realistic Heart

 

If you want more inspiration, here are some really cute DIY sewing ideas I found on Pinterest. I’ve collected them all on a board you can find here:

Hi all,
We are looking into why it does not work.
We can download here via explorer, firefox and chrome.

It is important to download the zip-file, extract the files to your computer and then open them.
But I will get back to you with more info asap.

Hi Lee and Sharon
When you have downloaded the zip-file. You need to extract the files and save them on your computer before opening them. Otherwise you get "file not found"
(ask me how I know :))))
I have also asked our techie to double check for me.

As a retired cardiac nurse I absolutely love the heart. I don't think I can convert the VP3 to PES but I will try my best. Thank you either way.
