How to Draw a Stitched Heart

Step 1.


Begin by drawing one half of a broken heart like you see here. The cracks should be large and pointed.

Step 2.


You will piece together the other side of the broken heart like so, and be sure to join the two pieces at the bottom so they align perfectly.

Step 3.


Before we stitch together the heart we must first repair some spots that have been tattered. You can do this by sewing together some patches like so. The lines for your patches can be as random as you want, but you have to make sure that the stitched   

Step 4.


Now the mending starts. Begin lacing your heart together starting where ever you want. I choose to start at the top because that area is still spread apart. As you make the stitches through the heart, you will also have to sketch in some cracks becau

Description: I Don’t know, I felt like making another heart design that could be fun as well as interesting to draw. I came up with this concept of a stitched heart with the help of some others that has patches and lace like stitches woven through each side of the heart trying to repair it from breaking. This tutorial will show you "how to draw a stitched heart", step by step. Despite how simple this lesson will be, I actually like how the whole thing came out. The two pieces are not uniform in size but torn from one another makes them seem whole. The patches are for all the abuse and hurt that heart went through but somehow repaired the hurt, and the stitches is supposed to symbolize new love or new beginnings. Even though the top of the heart is not pulled together completely, you can see that the heart is well on its way to being repaired because the bottom is coming together perfectly. This is a fun, creative way to show how you feel inside so I know that a lot of you girls out there will enjoy drawing a cool version of a stitched heart. I will be back with my last lesson for the day so stay tuned in for more drawing fun. Peace out people and thanks.
