Sunday Stitch School - Lesson 152: Chain of Heart Stitch

 Thank you for all wishes of a speedy recovery - they worked a treat. I and my back are now back in action!


Today's stitch will make up a lovely chain, a Chain of Hearts. I followed the instructions of Natalie Stopka of designsponge.com.


Here are my photo instructions:

You need three lines, a needle and thread.

Come out on the middle line.


Insert the needle in the middle line
above where you first came out.
Exit a bit above on the line to the left.

Anchor the stitch. You now have half a heart.

Make the other half in the same way to the right.


Repeat

until you have a nice chain of hearts


Tip: Give the thread a bit of slack to make a soft shape.
Use narrower lines for a rounder look.

Homework: 
These three samplers are calling out for hearts.

  1. That's delightful! One of those stitches that shows just how versatile a stitch combination can become, especially when you can play with the tension. I think you will find some threads work more successfully than others, too...
