Heart of Hearts

A friend of mine recently suffered health problems.  I was thinking about her today, wondering what little something I could send her and then it occurred to me: what I need to make for her is… a heart.

I used this pattern to crochet two hearts which are then crocheted together around the edges.  Before closing it, I stuffed it with fibrefill and lavender so that the heart not only looks pretty, but smells lovely too!

A great little crochet heart.
But it was still missing a bit of something…

…yes, of course, a tatted edging.  






A very satisfying morning's work.

All the while thinking about my friend
and wishing her good health.

Best wishes,
Frivole

    1. Hi Kathy, nice to "see" you again. No, the heart is not my own pattern and there is a link to the crochet pattern in the body of the post.

  7. The edging makes it - and that colour is wonderful. It's got Valentine's writ all over it. :-D

  14. Congratulations, Frivole ! That is a new concept. In the past crochet has been used to strengthen tatting. From now on, tatting can be used to enhance beautifull crochet.
