I found this pattern on Wild Olive last week, it's called 'love in the middle', you can find the pattern here for free. I've done cross stitch before but I've never done a full embroidery project before, it was a lot of fun to make! The fill in stitch done in the heart was my favorite part to do.
No one is going to be seeing the back often but I wanted to make it look decent anyway. I used this embroidery hoop framing tutorial. I cut out an extra felt circle and glued that to the cardboard, it's nicer to look at this way.
