Free Heart Circle curve stitching pattern added at Pinbroidery

By | Friday 29 January 2010

An attractive curve stitching design that creates a heart within a circle has been added to the free pattern section of the Pinbroidery website. The illustration shows the design stitched in confetti pink thread. The pattern size is 120 mm x 120 mm (4¾ x 4¾ inches).

The design is a scaled down version of a mathematical pattern that I created for my String Art Fun website. If you are interested in creating pictures with nails and string then you can download the free string art heart circle pattern there.

Please let me have your thoughts on this geometric design. Is this the kind of design you are interested in? Would you like to see more? Let us know in a comment to this blog.

    Thank you for your reactions Yvonne and Lisa c. I would be interested to hear your thoughts after you have stitched the patterns. Ease of use etc.
    Best wishes,

      Hi DJ – I pricked out the design and finished it in under half an hour – it looks great. Used the lighter confetti shade of metalic thread but want to try it out with two colours and see what effect that has. Will let you know. Thanks again, the design is causing quite a stir amongst my friends. Yvonne

    I’m all for these patterns derived from your “string art” work. If you’re so inclined, adapt any of them to the smaller format, they’re terrific.

    Really like the free Heart Circle Curve stitching pattern and would like to see more scaled down versions of the free string art patterns, particularly the boat and the shell, which I think would
    be good for cards for men. I did the heart circle one for my husband for Valentine’s day in multicolour red metallic thread on a cream card layered on red card, then gold card on top of the main cream card – looks very sophisticated!!! He will be intrigued how the pattern forms! The art is in the design – thank you.

    The mathematical name for this design is a cardioid. My first introduction to curve stitching was in Maths Lessons after O levels were finished, I then went on to teach Maths and used to draw these designs with pupils in MathsFun Clubs I ran. The first book I ever had on it was “Curve Stitching” by Jon Millington, published in 1989. This is complete with Computer Programs for BBC and Spectrum computers – a different age!
