Hey there, crafty friends and homeschool moms! Today, we’re getting creative with a fun and heartfelt project (pardon the pun). These stitched heart cards are a terrific Valentine’s Day project, whether you’re looking for a unique craft to do with your kids or just want to spend some personal mom time crafting. This DIY is perfect for adding a personal touch to any occasion, including a V-Day gift to a loved one or spouse.
It’s a relaxing activity that only requires a few supplies that you likely have on hand. So gather your materials and let’s get stitching!
List of Supplies for Stitched Heart Card:
- Cardstock paper
- Heart Template (optional)
Instructions for Stitched Heart Card:
Select cardstock paper and prepare a square or rectangular shape for the card. You can trace the heart shapes from the provided template or you can draw the heart yourself. Use a pencil to mark the stitching points along the traced heart shape.
Prepare a needle with thread and tie a knot at the thread’s open end.
Draw the needle through any one point from the backside of the card.
Pull the needle and thread all the way through.
Insert the needle through the point next to it.
Draw the needle out through the point opposite to it.
Draw the needle through a point opposite to its current point and continue to do the same.
This is the pattern we’re following for the heart card but you can follow any pattern you want.
We filled the heart shape with parallel patterns in the first round.
Then, we stitched slightly diagonal but parallel patterns for the next round. You can also create random patterns. Just make sure that the final pattern looks nice and balanced.
When you’re done stitching the heart, draw the needle to the backside of the card. Tie 1 or 2 tight knots and cut off extra thread.
You can add a piece of paper on the backside of the stitched heart card to cover the back stitches.
