Free Valentine's Day projects

Stitched Memory Heart
We can't help but be tempted by dollar store items — so cheap, and so bare; they just need a little tender-loving embellishment. This month's free Kreinik website projects feature $1 items (from Target and craft stores) transformed into gorgeous embellished gifts and home decor. Use them for Valentine's day, anniversaries, or just to share some love any time of the year. 


The secret lies within the metallic threads, which dress up any design. Start with the inexpensive base item, add layers of personalization and embroidery (or faux embroidery, as in the case with Kreinik iron-on threads, shh…), and you get impressive results and creative satisfaction. All of these projects are designed to be quick but meaningful and gorgeous. Enjoy!
