Fiber Art With Hearts

Since Valentine’s Day is coming up soon, I thought it would be interesting to dig into my project archives and take a look at some of the Valentine crafts I’ve made in the past.

Several years ago, I had such a great time embellishing these hearts that I’m thinking of crocheting a few more of them this year. My daughter is getting old enough that she might like to help me choose the embellishments for them. Lately, she’s had a thing for pompoms. Perhaps we could use a couple of these heart shapes to make a pompom embellished heart pouch or a child-sized purse for her to use for carrying her treasures.
