My favorite trend this Valentine’s season is the Arrow. It’s a fresh twist on traditional holiday hearts and it’s a fun way to decorate for Valentine’s Day without getting too cutesy. Not only is it a style that can endure far beyond February 14th, but it echoes the chevron craze that is still so hot in home decor.
A couple of looks that have really caught my eye include:
I would love it if my valentine surprised me with any of the above items, but the gold bracelet would be extra awesome.
You know… in case anyone needs a last minute gift idea.
But I digress.
In honor of this sharp arrow trend, I’ve come up with another Valentine’s Day cross-stitch pattern to go along with last year’s needlework craft.
For those that are new to Storypiece, last year I offered two free valentine cross-stitch patterns to my readers. If you would still like a copy of the stacked hearts or xoxo patterns, you can access them here.
This valentine’s day, the design is all about arrows.

I love that these patterns are simple and quick. This is an ideal project if you want to be able to finish something crafty in an afternoon or while watching a movie.
