Free Heart Designs to Stitch for a Love One.

In the Autumn of 2014 my friend's Father died. It was such an unexpected and shocking experience for her, there were no words that could sympathize with her loss. I made her a broken blackwork heart embroidery to remember her Father by.

Floral Blackwork Broken Heart


I stitched the valentine heart with beads for my husband on our 15 year wedding anniversary.


Elizabeth Hoerning turned the blackwork love heart into a cute sachet pouch for lavender. She explains how she did on the following webpage.

It is hard sometimes to put in words what you feel for a loved one and a piece of stitching can speak for you. I have charted the broken hearts and valentine heart embroideries for you to make for your loved one.
