Last week, Sir Beads brought home a bag of these . . .
We both remember them fondly from when we were kids.
Having them around the house (and eating them of course) put me in the mood to make a small heart of some kind. I decided to do a search for “crochet heart” and came across this pattern. I made a few one night while watching TV.
The pattern mentioned making a garland of them, but I wasn’t sure I wanted to do that. I started thinking of the conversation hearts again and one thing led to another. I began by sewing on a felt backing and then cut some felt scraps to make a flower.
But, what does this have to do with conversation hearts you ask? Well, I had an idea to make a “pocket” on the reverse side to hold a little message.
And here’s the final result . . .
The nice thing is that the felt version has no calories! 😉
Your heart is just too cute. You know, this would make a good tooth fairy tooth holder! Where did THAT come from?
Oh, I like that much better than a garland! Or a candy heart. Those things– we all remember them fondly, but did anyone ever actually *like*them? I bet your felt heart is tastier!:P
thats so cute!
I really must learn to crochet.
You could create a little hoop on the backside so it could slide onto a dog collar and have a little design for your pet!
I LOVE your little heart. Very clever.
Being diabetic I far prefer your version 🙂 I went to buy my husband’s vday gift – some sort of toolie thingie – and Home Depot didn’t have it. GRR. So I called him and very loudly told him how they’d ruined his vday LOL! Oh well.
This is so so cute Crystal. I hope Sir B appreciates it! Carol xoxo
Hi Crystal! This is so adorable! The teeny crochet heart is precious by itself, but you made it even more so with your special touches! I love hearts!!! Hugs, xoxo Paulette
What a great idea.
