The Hands and Heart digital pattern and bundle options are now here! This pdf pattern is available to download instantly, and also comes with a 5″ pattern for this excellent Dolly Parton quote. Want to customise this design? That’s easy! Simply write out your own quote in the centre of the hands, or just leave it blank if you prefer.
You can purchase this pattern on its own, or pre-order a materials bundle! The PDF will be available to download instantly, and the bundles will be ready to post w/b 3rd May. I’m not selling this as a kit this time, but the materials you’ll need are as follows:
- Pure Solids fabric in crystal pink
- 18cm/7″ embroidery hoop – I have hand painted mine to match the fabric, so ask for shade ‘Dolly’ in the box at checkout!
- An extra fine tip Aqua Trick marker
- DMC mouline embroidery thread in shade
- Perle cotton in shade 3326 (optional)
The thread used to stitch this design in the main photo is hand dyed silk embroidery thread by Liv at The Wool Shed and is not included in the pre-order bundles – you can find all her embroidery thread here! I used shade ‘Tutti Frutti’ to stitch this design. If you’d prefer cotton thread, check out the DMC Colour Variations.
Can I stitch this if I’m a beginner?
Absolutely! You only need to know one stitch for this pattern, which is backstitch. The very detailed step-by-step instructions include full colour photos, so you’ll learn how to do it in no time! It’s an easy design to transfer with the suggested materials above – if you need any help or advice, please just ask. Whether you’re new to hand embroidery or have had more experience, you’ll love stitching this project.
