I am finding the crochet hearts quite addictive! I decided to move on from the heart garland and make a little hair clip.



Use size 5 crochet hook and embroidery floss (all six strands)

Basic Heart

Chain 4.  Make all of the next stitches in the first chain. 3 trc, 3 dc, chain 1, 1 trc, chain 1, 3 dc, 3 trc, chain 2, slip stitch in center, pull loop to back and fasten off.

I used Angry Chicken’s covered hair barrette tutorial.  After I sewed the two pieces of felt together I used embroidery thread to make some embellishments. I then stitched the heart to the top of the felt cover.

We are now ready for Valentine’s Day!
