Spread the Love Stitch-Along
It's a new year and Valentine's Day is fast approaching, so it's the perfect time to Spread the Love! We want to see hearts created by you during our stitch along. We're providing you with heart-shaped templates on our seed bead graph paper that you can color in with your own designs or, if you want to get right to stitching, use the patterns we've made to get started. See more and download the diagrams below, plus learn how you could win some heart-themed items just by participating.
From Friday, January 22 to Wednesday, February 3rd, share a picture of your heart creations on Instagram (make sure to tag us in your photos with our handle: @artbeads) or in our Facebook group for #SeriousArtbeaders. You can share pictures of the patterns you've colored in on the graph paper and your completed stitched hearts, too. You can use either brick stitch or peyote stitch to create these hearts. Or, if stitching isn't your thing, you can share some of the other heart-themed jewelry you've been working on. We're focused on spreading the love, so the more hearts, the merrier! Download our heart templates below:
Large Heart Templates
These printable templates are for making larger hearts that are about 2 inches in size. Use the blank template to fill in and color with your own designs.
