With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, I thought it might be fun to share some Valentine themed craft projects that I have been working on. Last month I participated in a cabled heart crochet along and here are the two heart squares I made.
This 6 inch cabled heart square pattern features just a single heart.
I just loved the 12 inch Yarncrazy Cabled Hearts Pattern (not available anymore) and thought it would make a wonderful center for a crocheted baby blanket. So I used the large square and then proceeded to double crochet around it to create this baby afghan.
Here are a few Valentine heart bookmarks I crocheted. These are quick and easy little gifts that you can make using just bits of scrap yarn. The free pattern link for the bookmarks is here.
And I would be amiss not to share some recycled plastic bag projects I made in the past. Here is my Valentine’s plastic tote bag that is crocheted using plarn and some fun fur. I added a heart to the front using a scrap of red felt.
My fused plastic Valentines holder is made using some plastic bags, scrap yarn, felt, and a piece of red ribbon.
Or maybe you would like to use some of your old jeans to make a cute recycled denim baby bib.
You can also use those old jeans to sew up these sweet little denim purses for that special little girl for Valentine’s Day.
I hope you have enjoyed these Valentine and heart projects. Happy Valentine’s Day and happy crafting to all!
