French Rose Heart Cross Stitch Pattern








Roses always inspire me. A pretty heart of white roses is timeless and elegant. Sometimes less is more. This design is at home in traditional, romantic or rustic interiors. Stitch it on cottage rose linen (featured here) or any of the suggestions I provide below.  It was inspired by vintage French linens. 









Stitch an elegant family heirloom for yourself or a loved one. There are endless options for this sincere piece of embroidered art.

Below are some of my favorite color combinations. It's pretty in a frame or made into a pillow.

32-Count Cottage Rose Linen with White Silk Floss (featured in this post)
