Vintage Valentine Stitchy Color Palette

It is February, and Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. Are you stitching a Valentine for anyone special this year?

This month’s embroidery thread color palette is inspired by a vintage Valentine theme.

Vintage Valentine Stitching Color Palette

Instead of bright reds or pinks, I chose more muted tones to create a thread palette that feels like a well-loved antique.

Vintage Love Valentine Color Palette for Stitchers

This embroidery thread palette uses DMC threads in the following shades (from left to right above):

DMC 3033  (mocha brown – vy lt)
DMC 778   (antique mauve – vy lt)
DMC 3727 (antique mauve – lt)
DMC 3722  (shell pink – md)
DMC 169  (pewter  – lt)
DMC 762  (pearl gray – vy lt)

Maybe this color palette will inspire you to create your own stitchy Valentine, but if you need some more inspiration, stay tuned! On Wednesday I will be sharing a free cross-stitch pattern using these colors that will be quick enough to stitch for someone in time for the holiday.

About the Color Palette Series

This year I am creating a color palette with embroidery floss every month and designing a free small cross-stitch pattern using the palette just for fun. If you missed January’s post, you can find the January color palette here and the free snowflake cross-stitch pattern here.
