The main thing is to love yourself, allways remember that!!
Instead of a card to give to your Valentine- and if you have a minute to spare and some needle and thread- you could make a quick heart that you embroider instead, which will be so much more personal.
You will need some natural linen and some white embroidery thread for this, and some filling for the heart, plus a pretty ribbon, and you're done.Super easy!
An embroidered heart is really simple to make. Get a heart shape from the internet ( Google->Google Images -> Heart ) and enlarge it to a required size, then print off and use as template.
If you go on this link you will find the font I used, Baroque Script.
You can download this but then you have to pay ( which I did not want to do ) , but you can also do a "custom font preview", which basically means you can try out a few words for free.
There is a little box in which you type the word or words you would like in the Baroque Script Font.
You can put in "Happy Valentine's Day" or whatever you want.You can only do a few words at a time, so for my letters, " You're perfect", I had to do the below procedure twice, once for " You're" and once for " perfect".But then it's absolutely for free!
Then do a screenprint of the whole page ,
paste that on Paint, cut out the letters and paste that on a Word Document, you then have a document you can print off to use as a template for the words for your embroidery.
How you can transfer your design can be found here or here.
I used a simple embroidery stitch, a tiny satin stitch.
If you want to know how to do this you can find it here.
Have fun and have a great Valentine's day, and love the ones you're with! And if you are not loved up, do not stress! You never know what's round the corner!!
