No matter what some of the people at work say about me, I do have a heart. As a matter of fact I actually have several of them.
I have Loraine to thank for my abundance of hearts. She posted a tutorial for tiny crocheted hearts. She found the directions here and then shared them with all of her readers. When I saw them I really liked them so I dusted off my crochet hooks and dug out some yarn.
Mine aren't as tiny but I seemed to have a bit of difficulty trying to crochet with embroidery floss so I gave up and just went with yarn.
Then I found some crochet cotton and made a bunch more. Here is one on another of my Valentine treat boxes that I've been working on.
I'm planning on picking up some pin backs and making some heart pins, and I may even make some of them into magnets.
That crocheted heart really spiced up that card. Wow, I love it. I can't crochet either. I tried a while back. I gave up. I just don't have a crafty bone in my body.
Have a terrific weekend. My best to Duke. :)
Very cute- They could have lots and lots of uses.
And such cute little hearts they are! :)
Those are cute! And your boxes are pretty. Good idea to make them into pins and magnets!
I had been thinking of magnets before you even said it, but pins would be even better!! People would really comment on them everywhere you went! They are just adorable! and I love the boxes!! Hmmm...perhaps put a couple hearts on Duke's collar for Valentine's Day!
They are adorable and I think I would use thinner yarn instead of floss...I don't like working with thread - it's too small for my eyes...
So, are you going to hand them out at work so they can see that you are not heartless? (I wonder how that rumor got started - are you a tough boss?)
I think you have a BIG heart! And now lots of sweet little yarn hearts. Thanks for the mention! I made a garland of hearts using a slightly different pattern than the little ones. The are made with yarn. I will post them for Mosaic Monday (Sunday evening)
This is really cute! Thanks for the link.
They are adorable, I don't even try to crochet. My biggest sis does, she loves it. You did really good Annie.
What a cute idea. I think I'll look up the directions and make a few myself! Thanks.
Sandee I thought so too. I actually taught myself how to crochet after many many failed attempts. I can't do anything fancy but I know the basic stitches and can make a blanket :)
sharkbytes absolutely, I think the possibilities are endless
catherine aren't they though
reeni thanks, I thought the pins would make nice gifts for the girls at work
ginny I think I like the pin idea better than the magnet but I'm going to do both
doris same here with the eyes. yes I am going to give them out at work and yes I am a bit of a tough boss when the work isn't getting done right.
ldh aw thanks. and even more little hearts still to come. I can't wait to see your garland
helen thanks and you're welcome. Will we be seeing some cards with crochet hearts on them?
Ann, those fabric hearts are just so cute and make the perfect card. You are so creative.
Those are so cute! If I knew how to crochet I'd be making lots of little hearts too! I really like those boxes. I'm thinking you need an Etsy shop!
those are cute. I could actually do that since I know how to crochet - I even sat through the video!
Love your little hearts. They really do make sweet little gifts.
Great video too ~ LDH shares the best things!
very cute. your coworkers don't know jack...lol!!
Hey Ann...these are lovely..and I went and checked out the link...it's a great site and as a novice crocheter i will keep checking it out!!
I don't know, your capacity for love looks like it could get kinda fuzzy.
Those pink crocheted hearts are adorable. Yes, they would make perfect brooches!
Coooooool! I'm off to check out the pattern :o)
I really like those hearts. I might have to learn to crochet. That would be fun to make a whole blanket plus those cute hearts. You are just good at all of it Ann. Hope you have a fun week end. Take care Duke.
you go girl, they are sooo cute. and pins and magnets will make cute gifts. they are really cool little hearts. happy heart day. i really like the one on the card, the colors.
Miawa I was doing quite a bit of it for a while and then I think I burn out on it but now I'm loving it again especially with such a quick and easy project
real life in a minute they are cute and so many things you can do with them
poetic shutterbug thanks, they do look good on a card
beaded tail best part is hearts are good all year long not just for valentines day
grace I skipped the video. for some reason I normally don't like to watch them.
marie thanks and yes they do
roschelle lol, most of the coworkers are younger kids who don't care about working they just want a paycheck
allotments4you thanks, glad you liked it. isn't the internet a great place to find info when you're learning something
fishhawk lol leave it to you to think of something like that
duni I thought so too. Now if I can only remember to pick some up when I'm out shopping today
jen cooooool, will the boys be sporting crocheted hearts for Valentines day?...lol
Marg I wish I could learn to focus on just one kind of craft and get really good at it but I have too many interests and just keep jumping around...lol
Great job Ann. Some excellent ideas. I checked out her site and sent the address to my wife and my sister in law
Your hearts are sweet, and so versatile ...
I love them! Very cute.
This would be a good use for odds and ends of yarn.
I love the hearts...might just have put down the quilling to try these.
These are great, Ann! How adorable!
Wow very nice you did a great job!
I love them! so cute!
Those hearts are adorable!!! I can't say enough about that instructional video! I am a novice at the art of crochet and it definitely helps actually SEEING the stitches as she does them! I have gone heart crazy since reading your blog and checking out the link!
Oh sweetie, I think your little crochet hearts are simply precious and so fittin' with Valentines Day.
God bless ya and have just a beautiful weekend my friend!!! :o)
