Hello everyone,

This simple motif has been designed with clothing patches or Halloween cards in mind. With only three thread colours and whole stitches only it could even be used as a simple yet bold decoration when sewn on to plastic canvas.

I know its a bit early for Halloween right now but I love all things to do with the season and couldn't resist posting a small design for anyone like me who can't wait to get crafting some decorations. Plus its a heart shape I can pretend its for Valentines day :)

Maybe I'm showing my age but I do recall this style of design being very popular when I was a teenager. We often used to mix skulls and bright colours together to create bold but slightly gothic looks. I even embroidered such a design on to one of my denim jackets long ago.

Much love and happy stitching
