Handmade Holiday- Map Embroidery

I know so many people that just LOVE where they live, myself included. So, I made this really simple craft that makes a wonderful, thoughtful and personal gift.

First Print a map of your chosen city. Make sure to print the map to be the same size as the frame you’d like to display it in. Next draw a heart shape around the city on the map using a pencil so you can adjust it if you make a mistake. Then using 3 stands of red embroidery thread, stitch over the heart you drew. There are many different stitches, but I think that a back stitch looks best on this type of project.

Once you have finished your heart, tie off the back and frame the paper in a coordinating frame.

Super simple, easy, cheap, and cute!
