For Valentine's Day.
I wanted something quaint & simple and seeing as how I had these gold rings from a crocheted belt that I was going to make...well, how about putting them to use for this?
A simple single crochet around the edge of the ring.
Round 2 is a super easy scalloped edging of ch 5 into every 4th stitch.
Then onto a heart.
The pattern for this I got from Nicky Epstein's book: crocheting on the edge.
Traced the bottom of a vase & cut out a circle from cardboard and fabric...
...I folded and glued the edges down. Then glued all of this to the crocheted ring.
Adhered the crocheted heart to the front & found a tiny, antique button in my button tin that was just perfect for this.
