Center template on fabric and mark one of the floral designs for placement. Note: Mark placement of each section, one at a time. As fabric sews it sometimes becomes distorted. Marking one section at a time will assure a perfect heart.
Place fabric in the Embroidery Hoop using the Clothsetter for perfect placement. Note: When using fusible fleece no other stabilizer is required when sewing.

Small Hearts: The small hearts are embellished used the built-in lettering on the Memory Craft.

- Pick a favorite Valentine's saying and stitch it in the center of the small hearts, alternating fabrics. (If lettering puckers, iron an iron-on stabilizer to wrong side of fabric before sewing sayings.) Suggested sayings: Be My Valentine, Kiss Me, Hug Me, Be Mine, Sweetie Pie, etc. Note: For placement of saying, stitch on fabric and then cut out. Place the saying on the small heart to know where to start. Experiment using built-in Block and Script letter styles.
