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