Friday Free Pattern- Valentine Day Special

My Heart Beats For You...

Here is a pattern I am posting for you on Saturday rather than Friday. Sorry for the delay. I have to attend to all my pending matters, held up due to the demonetization. I wanted to embroider the pattern before posting. So It took me some time.

Since Valentine Day is fast approaching, the theme of the pattern is centered on it. 

I first drew the pattern and digitized it. Then printed it out. 

Since I was stitching it on a hand kerchief which was made of fine cotton, I could place the design under the cloth and easily trace it.  

This is how it looked after tracing it with a pencil.
First I started with the heart. I stitched the outline in Chain Stitch. Then filled it using buttonhole Filling Stitch. Then stitched the flourishes on either side using, Stem Stitch.
I have used red coloured Pearl Cotton thread from Anchor - single strand.
So my embroidery looks like this.
You can use other stitches, threads according to your liking. I feel this pattern looks good on hankys, blouses, shirts, -sleeves and pockets, kids garments, small bags or purses, pillow cases, cushion covers. 

Here is the free pattern

Just try it out and please share your work. I would love to see how it turned out. I hope this pattern is easy to down load and print and the size is also OK.  If there are any issues with downloading and printing, please mail me. I am not well versed with digitizing drawings. I tried my best.

Hope you like it...
