If you’re new around my little corner of the internet, you might not know that I have a handmade shop! In edition to being a Blogger / Media Manager / Online Business Manager / Wife / Fur-Mom, I am also a passionate maker of handmade awesomeness! I make all kinds of things for my little Homespun Happiness shop, but one of my favorite things to create is fun, colorful and unique pieces of art for your walls, aka Hoop Art! With it being February and all, I decided some sort of Heart Hoop Art was necessary… so I started brainstorming ideas! And so this Geo Style Heart Hoop Art was born… and I am in LOVE!

I don’t typically give away “trade secrets” and share the patterns I’ve created for my unique hoop art pieces… maybe one day I’ll have patterns for sale… but in the mean time, this one is so simple to create on your own and SO MUCH FUN to stitch, I can’t help but share!

Making a Geo Heart Hoop Art

**Affiliate links – See disclosure at bottom for more details…

To make your own Geo Style Heart Hoop Art you’re going to need…

Embroidery hoop (any size you want) I used a 10 inch hoop. **
Fabric (at least 2 inches bigger than the embroidery hoop – I used Robert Kaufman Essex Yarn Dyed Linen in Charcoal**
Fabric Pencil / Marker** (I only use Sewline fabric markers! They are freaking awesome!)
Paper – scrap paper is totally fine
Fabric Scissors **
Paper Scissors
Fabric Ruler **
Embroidery Floss **
Embroidery Needle **

Step #1 – Cut out a heart shape from your scrap paper. The size doesn’t matter a whole lot – it really depends on the size of your embroidery hoop and how much stitching you want to do.

Step #2 – Trace the heart outline onto the center of your fabric piece. If you’re using a light pencil on a dark fabric (like shown) trace the outline a few times for better visiblity.

Step #3 – Use your fabric ruler to add the geometric lines that you will use as the boundaries of your pink stitching. I just kept adding random lines until I was happy with the way it looked.

Step #4 – Place your fabric in the embroidery hoop.

Step #5 – Pick out the various pink embroidery flosses you’d like to use. I pulled a wide range from my “hoard”, mixing in lots of different tones and shades.

Step #6 – Pick a section of the heart and start stitching! This is considered a satin stitch and these directions might be helpful if you’re a total newbie 🙂 I used the same color for 2-4 sections/locations of the heart and then moved onto a different color. I tried to vary the direction of each section as I went, so not only the color is different, but the “Direction” of the shape differs too. Repeat until the whole heart is filled up!

Step #7 – To give this Heart Hoop Art the finishing touch, I added a line of white along the edge of each section and then back stitched along the outside. I liked the way it added a little more definition to each section and the outside of the heart, but this is a totally optional step!

Step#8 – Secure your fabric in your embroidery hoop with a little hot glue along the inner edge. – photo tutorial for this coming soon!

I am madly in love with the way this little Geo Style Heart Hoop Art turned out! I was torn between adding it to my shop or hanging it over my desk… keeping it and displaying it over my desk won out… for now! I will be adding this as a CUSTOM piece to my online shop soon! So if you really LOVE this heart hoop art, but don’t want to make it yourself, you’ll be able to order it soon!

Can’t wait for me to get it listed in the shop? send me an email and we can design your very own custom piece! [email protected] 🙂
