"Love You" is a quick little project that has arrived just in time for Valentine's Day stitching!
The model was stitched on 16ct. Black Aida using 2 ply thread. The stitch count is 57w x 40h, and the finished design measures approximately 3 1/2"w x 2 1/2"h when stitched on that fabric. The pattern calls for whole stitches only, and is stitched in shades of red and white. It uses floss from both DMC and Weeks Dye Works. A DMC equivalent is provided for the specialty floss.

RECREATE THE LOOK:
Finish Fabric: The red plaid is Chelsea's Checks from Henry Glass Fabric, SKU #9700-8.
Cording: I used white twisted cord trim from Merchant 41 (Hobby Lobby). The SKU is 829341.
Bow: I used a 1.5" wire-edged white canvas ribbon from 5th Street Studio on Etsy. The button in the centerpiece is a size 36 covered button (7/8") from Dritz. I used a scrap of red/white polka dot fabric from my stash to cover the button. I also trimmed some sprigs off of a Flocked Greenery pick from Studio His & Hers (Hobby Lobby) and used hot glue to adhere them under the bow. The SKU for the greenery I used is 1763069.
The materials listed above are unique to this piece. The foundational supplies (the board, glue, batting, etc--stuff you can't see) are the same no matter what I am finishing, so I buy those in bulk and keep them on hand. You can see what those materials are on the Tools and Organization page. One more time, here it is all together:
