Fabric Heart Garland


Tell me the truth... Did you suspect, at any moment, that some sort of heartish garland would materialize upon these pages? Did you know in your heart of hearts that I, like so many others, would fall prey to the ebb and flow of those yearly calendar events around which crafters build their crafts. Of course you did. And you were 100% correct. I've become predictable, haven't I?


Could you perhaps, forgive me just this once? For I sincerely heart this tiny garland. I heart the sweet row of blanket stitches holding together each hearty sandwich of fabric and felt. I heart the play of single crochet and chain stitches entwined around some of their heartish borders. I heart how I've woven this latest garland through my new crochet-edge curtains. Little did you know it, but that was my crafty plan you see, hee hee.


The garland brings a sweet blush of colour to our wintery room.


I heart it very much. I hope you heart it too.

  23. Wow! I think people love these!

    And for good reason! What a beautiful garland. But the little hearts would also work as ornaments on a valentine tree - that is where mine will be displayed! And they would be beautiful on Valentine cards! Or nordic theme Christmas trees!

    You just never cease to amaze me with your creativity!
