Stitched Memory Heart

Stitched Memory Heart

Combine heart stitches of silk threads, shimmering metallic thread bows, and a family photo, and you have a treasured keepsake. Perfect for a Valentine's Day or Anniversary gift, this little project can be made in an evening. 

Materials  needed:

  • purchased heart shape (like a wooden heart, or this burlap-fabric-covered heart we found at AC Moore craft store)
  • family photo (printed on photo paper - don't use your original!)
  • Kreinik 1/8" Ribbon 202HL Aztec Gold Hi Lustre
  • Kreinik Silk Mori, 2.5m skeins in 1117 Very Dark Christmas Red, 1093 Light Wood Violet, 1105 Medium Dark Mauve, 6126 Dusty Dark Lavender
  • Kreinik Very Fine #4 Braid 002V Vintage Gold
  • about a 4" x 4" piece of 28-count evenweave fabric or linen, natural or tan color 
  • #24 Tapestry needle
  • Kreinik Treasure Tape (double sided tape), 4" x 6" sheets (2)
  • • miniature silk dove or other memento as desired

Instructions:

  1. Stitch the design following the graph and stitch instructions. 
  2. Trim design leaving about 1/4" on all sides. Attach double-sided Treasure Tape to the back. Don't remove the red liner until you are ready to attach it to your heart shape.
  3. Attach double-sided Treasure Tape to your photo. Don't remove the red liner until you are ready to attach it to your heart shape.
  4. Layer onto your heart shape: first the photo, then the stitched piece, then any accessories (like the silk dove in our model).
  5. Add ribbons as desired.
