Here’s a quick little project for you to make in time for Valentine’s Day! Crochet Conversation Hearts can display a variety of messages on the top (whatever you want to stitch on!) and can be used so many ways! As you can see I made a headband for Zoe but these could be stand alone valentines, key chains, pencil toppers, appliqués, seasonal decor, or add them to a wreath. I basically used my Crochet Puffy Hearts pattern and show you how to add on the stitching in the video below.
– Bernat Super Value Yarn. I used colors Lavendar, Baby Pink, Yellow, and Red for . Shop all colors HERE at Yarnspirations.com.
– Size H Crochet Hook
– Poly-fil Fiber Stuffing
– Tapestry Needle
– Headband and glue gun
Puffy Hearts Pattern:
Make two in same color
Chain 7, SC in 2nd chain from hook and the rest of the way down chain, ch 1, turn (6 SC)
Row 2-3: SC in each stitch, ch 1, turn (6 SC)
Row 4: SC in first 3 stitches, ch 1, turn (3 SC)
Row 5-7: SC in each stitch across, ch1, turn (3 SC)
When you get to the last row, continue to SC around entire heart. When you get to bottom stitch (the one with the your slip knot) SC + Chain 1 + SC all in one stitch. Then when you get to the top “v” indent, slip stitch (instead of SC). Join, fasten off and weave in ends.
Stitch on the lettering using 2-ply yarn (carefully split apart your 4-ply worsted weight yarn so it’s only two strands) and use tapestry needle to stitch on the letters. Video below may help! Bernat Super Value yarn works great for this.
Take 2 of the same color heart and place one on top of the other. Instead of SC the edges together (like I did in the original Puffy Hearts blog post, I decided to just stitch them together with a tapestry needle, working under the tops of the SC stitches around the edges. Stuff lightly with poly-fil before completely closing up. This just makes the hearts a little smaller (since I was gluing them to a headband) but you could do it either way!
I hot glued the hears to the headband but you could also sew them on with your tapestry needle or use them for a different project!
