A young paratrooper will be deployed to afghanistan after jan. and asked for help in making heart box for girlfriend as reminder. Although I never charge for anything I believe his service is a great payment. Any help.especially mpc and or pattern or even advice would be greatly appreciated. He wants it to say ''NATE + COURT 4 EVER" .

Here is a quick heart I made..not sure what your looking for but mabey this will help. I also attached jus a plain 2.5 d heart if you want to add text or dfx drawing on top instead of what I put.

Thank you very very much John. Sorry to be such a pain.

Adding to Johns GREAT design, I added their name to a project. I also built in a 3.5 inch overlap on each end to keep it under the rollers. I also used Centerline and Conforming Vectors. If you don't have these I will upload another version or John can merge it into a custom pattern for you with their names in it.

Anything for a young Soldier who is off to serve their country and the special person they leave behind!
