In February there is Valentine’s Day: the day for lovers. And what could be more appropriate than to choose the heart – the symbol for love – for this month’s tablecloth decoration. Of course, the heart is doubly appropriate for our purpose since the motif plays a big role in Schwalm whitework.

In past posts, “A Comparison of Iron-On Transfer Pencils” and “Iron Transfer versus direct Tracing”, one can find a heart design. Also on this blog one can find many articles describing how to embroider a heart.

Embroider some such hearts, either all the same size and the same shape or in different sizes or shapes.

One can see how to cut out an embroidered heart here: “Small Project – Slate meets Linen”.

It is a fun to play with the finished pieces to test the different possibilities for decoration and to find your favorite arrangement.
