DIY Valentine Gift | Embroidery Hoop Art

Need a quick, last-minute gift idea? Try this little embroidered heart-brella...ella...ella!

I whipped up this cute little hoop in just under an hour! It makes a great last minute gift idea for your special Valentine :)

What you'll need to get started:
  • 3" inch embroidery hoop
  • scissors
  • 1 sheet of red felt
  • 1 sheet of blue felt
  • blue and red embroidery floss
  • needle
  • plaid fabric

Cut a semi-circle from the blue felt, approx. 2 inches wide. Also cut a small "J"

Cut some scallops into your blue semi-circle

Cut out a few small hearts (at least 4) from your red felt

Separate your blue embroidery floss into two strands and sew on the blue applique umbrella.

Use a running stitch and 3 strands of red floss to sew on your hearts

Once you're finished, sew or glue the fabric on the back of the hoop for a clean look

Step back and enjoy your work! Then give it away to your favorite Valentine!
