Organic Heart Washcloth


I was lucky enough to test this pattern for the lovely Jessica from Sunny Stitching.  It's a fantastically written pattern, that's easy to follow and quick to work up.  Did I mention it's free?  



I used Lion Brand Nature's Choice Organic Cotton yarn in Spice, Olive, & Almond for this set.
The softness of this yarn is unbelievable, perfect for delicate skin.




Little heart appliqu├ęs just to add to the cuteness!


Do you have someone you need to make a quick gift for?
Make these!  I promise you are going to love it & so is your recipient.

Pretty Little Heart Bunting



Remember all those pretty hearts I made?




Well I used them to make this pretty little bunting.



I found scraps of beautiful Liberty of London fabric that I had in my stash and tied them in between my hearts.  I just love the way it looks with all my little crochet hearts.


I made my bunting string using worsted yarn and at every ch 20 attaching a heart with a slip stitch or tying on a scrap of that pretty fabric.

Did you work up anything for Valentine's Day? Any big plans? 
This lucky gal gets to see her favorite band, Kings of Leon.  
Probably my 
Best.Valentines.Day.Ever!
Hope yours is too!

Hearts, Hearts, Hearts, Hearts, Hearts, Hearts………..



I've got "heart" fever.  Can you tell?  

There are so many fantastic heart patterns to choose from, but two recently published patterns caught my eye.





The first one "Boho Hearts" by Cherry Heart.  I just about died when I saw these pretty little hearts! I knew I had to make them right away.




The second one is by Pattern Piper Crochet.  A beautiful granny style heart.  I added a simple single crochet, ch 1 edging around this heart pattern.




I rounded out my heart making with this lovely, simple heart by Crochet Leaf.  With this pattern I added a single crochet edge.

Do you have a favorite heart pattern?   

In the meantime, 
I have big plans for these hearts, so stay tuned……
