Paris Pink Heart Pattern


Hi Friends! How are you? Fall is my favorite time of year in New England. As the weather is turning colder, I've been busy stitching and designing new patterns for you. My Paris Pink Heart is a sweet pattern to stitch with silk on white linen. The pink silk floss is made by the Needlepoint Inc Company. The floss I chose for this project is bright pink and just gorgeous. The low light of the winter-sun doesn't quite capture the beauty of this bright pink floss in some of the photos. The photo (directly below with the teacup) shows a more accurate color of the pink floss. But as you can see, the pattern looks pretty with light or bright pink floss.  

  


Wintertime means lots of cozy stitching under comfy quilts. Cross stitching calms my soul. A lazy weekend morning with French-press coffee is even better when I know there's something special in my hoop. Silk is my favorite floss to stitch with because it's elegant and beautiful.


I often stitch while watching movies. Have you seen The Beguiled (2017) directed by Sofia Coppola and starring Nicole Kidman and Kirsten Dunst? Onmigosh, it's like viewing a painting. The costumes and set design are full of French-style-southern-gorgeousness. I've watched it many times while stitching up this heart. The movie provided me with endless inspiration for a few more designs too. I plan to offer an alphabet for monogramming soon. Once this heart is back from the frame shop, I'll show it to you. If you've stitched my French Rose Heart, this pattern is a nice complimentary piece. I hope you enjoy this pattern! Happy Stitching! xx ~ Jilly 


Pattern Description:

This pretty heart is inspired by vintage French linens. The pattern is stitched with pink silk floss (or DMC Embroidery Floss) on white linen. You may wish to stitch this heart in your favorite colors. White floss on colored linen is also a nice choice.

The finished size of the heart is approximately 7.5 x 6.5 inches
