Welcome to Stole My Heart by Elaine

Lovingly Created by Hand

All of my items are individually designed and created by me. I like to work from your own ideas, using my skills to work them in to your finished design. They will include embroidered elements you simply won’t find anywhere else. Whether you’re looking for an Ordination gift, a gift for a member of the clergy or for yourself I’ll work with you to create your perfect vestment.
