Valentine Hearts Cutwork Set

The Valentine Hearts Cutwork designs can be embroidered both as inserts and as freestanding ornaments. Here are the instructions for both versions.

You will need fabric, water soluble mesh and embroidery polyester threads.
Please note, we DO NOT recommend to use rayon embroidery threads with water soluble mesh because the chemicals in the mesh dissolve the threads.

Embroidering the Design as a Cutwork Insert

All three designs from the set are embroidered in the same way.

Step One: Hoop the fabric with water soluble mesh. Skip the first color (you need that only for the freestanding version). Start the machine from the second color. It will embroider the outline of the design and stop.

Step Two: Take the hoop from the machine. With a pair of sharp scissors cut away the fabric in the areas shown on the picture.

Step Three: Return the hoop to the machine and finish embroidering.

Step Four: Wash away the stabilizer and neatly spread on a flat surface and leave to air dry. Press.

Embroidering the Design as a Freestanding Ornament

Step One: Hoop 2 layers of water soluble mesh. Start the machine. It will embroider the heart shape and stop.

Step Two: Place a piece of fabric over the mesh to cover the outline. You can pin the fabric to the mesh outside the embroidery area. Start the machine. It will embroider the outline of the design and stop.

Step Three: Take the hoop from the machine. With a pair of sharp scissors cut away the fabric in the areas shown on the picture - outside the heart and inside, around the flowers and bow. Take care not to cut through the stabilizer and stitches.

Step Four: Return the hoop to the machine and finish embroidering.

Step Five: Wash away the stabilizer, neatly spread on a flat surface and leave to air dry. Press.

We used the ornaments on a Valentine gift box:

You can read about how to make the gift box on the project page.

Happy Embroidering!
