This is the finished heart from Sunday. I also worked on the sampler during the SuperBowl and will give you an update after a couple of hearts are done.
My plan is to pick one overdyed thread, like Sunset in the Twinchy above, and use it as the basis for each heart. Over the weekend I pulled a bunch of lime green thread as well as son bright pink and magenta ones I dyed myself.
Now for the heart outlines. They are all displayed full size.
This heart is taken from the San Francisco heart and made smaller. It’s a classic heart shape and was used for the zig-zag heart.
Another classic heart, this one a bit taller than it is wide.
This heart has a little bit of a tail. You can make that more pronounced by extending the bottom a bit and curving it up.
This heart is tall and narrow. Notice that it is not symmetrical at top. This makes it look more contemporary I think.
Have fun stitching!
