Valentine’s gifts are not only shared between lovers……it is the perfect time to share the love with children, teachers, friends and family.
I am sure you do not want to incur a lot of cost doing that, because of Christmas spending and all the expenses with the new year.
The chances are that you are probably hoarding stash – I have yet to meet the DIY-er without a trunk load of this-and-that’s just in case she needs it!!

Valentine’s Day hand embroidery patterns
With all the Christmas decor packed away, I’m thinking of the next fun holiday to break up the winter chill. Needlework goes hand in hand with warm blankets and cold nights, so I thought I’d round up some ideas of what to embroidery and cross stitch for Valentine’s Day! There are a bunch of independent designer’s Valentine’s Day embroidery designs and then a few freebies at the end of the list. I can see lots of these stitched and hanging on a wall, or added to a shirt, sewn on to a pillow, the possibilities are endless.
If there’s no picture it is because I didn’t hear back with permission to use it, but click through to check it out! Please don’t pin individual photos from this post, use the long collage at the bottom.
I also have a list of Valentine’s Day cross stitch patterns, if you are a versatile crafter!

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and I think we could all use a little extra love this year. It’s a great opportunity to show someone you care, friends, gal pals, family, children, loves, everyone needs to know they’re not alone and that someone is thinking of them.
Let’s storm this year with love and make it better than the last one.
Why not stitch up a sweet Valentine’s Day embroidery using one of these beautiful patterns?! That’s what I’m going to be doing!
So many of these patterns would be suitable decor year round too, not just for for Valentine’s Day. I’m going to make the Pride and Prejudice themed embroidery and it will hang in our bedroom to remind my love everyday that he’s my #1.
