Little crochet hanging hearts

Hello.  Last night I showed you some little crochet hearts I've been working on and now I can show you their new home.  Ta dah!!

This is a corner of my bedroom and you might be able to see the bunting I made here
in the top left hand corner of the photo.

For the hearts I crocheted a long chain and as I went along I slip stitched into the back of the heart to attach it to the chain.  There were about eight chain between each heart and I left a tail of chain either side of the hearts.  To the tail of yarn I attached a bead to finish off.


This little project has added some cheer to my bedroom and I'm thinking something similar to this would look nice on a door handle.  It would probably drive hubby nuts having something flapping against the door and the cats would think it was a new toy to play with, but what the heck, it's FUN!!

Now I just have to go and work out why the blocking of my bunting has not worked.  I've used acrylic yarn, whatever I had to hand.  Oh well, perhaps I'll just have curly bunting and have to live with it.

Enjoy your day,

Anne  xx

I wondered what you were going to do with these - what a cute idea. I am thinking this would be a lovely project for my daughter's bedroom.
Can i be cheeky abd ask if you have a pattern for the little hearts?

Hello Anne!

I love your pretty hearts - your home will be bedecked in crochet now you're 'hooked' on crochet!!

I'm delighted you've had a go at the bunting. A quick tip to help it hang properly - try blocking it face down and/or using a little spray starch or liberal coating of hairspray to stiffen it slightly. It will have the added bonus of being fragrant too!!

PS. Notice how I've not even mentioned your glorious blue skies and soaring temperatures ..!

I've been stringing mini hearts into bunting too - they seem addictive to make and then you wonder what to do with them!
