DIY Embroidered Valentine's Day Gifts

Valentine's Day is just around the corner and I'm all about crafts with hearts and treats. I'm a sucker for sweet embroidery patterns and OESD has the best (pun intended).  I wanted to create some unique DIY Valentines gifts with their design collection, Valentine.  A little different than your average gifts with embroidery but fun none-the-less. Get the details below on how to embroider your own V-day socks and add a festive look with this DIY embroidered elbow patch just in time for the upcoming holiday. 


  • Use an adhesive tear- away stabilizer and hoop it sticky side up. 
  • Place a Twill Iron-on patch on the center of the hoop.
  • Position the design to the center of the patch.
  • Embroider the design. 
  • Remove any excess twill around the design. 
  • Iron the patch onto the elbow area of a long sleeve top. 

  • Use an adhesive tear-away stabilizer and hoop it sticky side up. 
  • Place the sock over a small hoop and tack the back down so you don't embroider through. You can use a baste stitch, clips, or pins. 
  • Once secure, position your design and embroider.
  • Use a wash away stabilizer as a topping to get a more detailed design. 
  • Remove the top stabilizer with water. 

I love creating one-of-a-kind gifts with embroidery and these Valentine's designs were perfect. See more embroidery patterns and products EmbroideryOnline.com.
