a quaint heart



A heart.

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.





Quaint indeed.

That's really cute! I've got lots of beautiful little fabric samples lying round, and this would be a great idea to use them - thanks for the inspiration!

Your Valentine heart is absolutely gorgeous! And your tutorial equally beautiful! I love the collage of images so much.

Your little frame would work so well with other knit or crochet miniatures! You have given me some ideas!!!! :-)
