Hearts Galore!

Happy Valentine’s Day!!

There are so many DIY projects available for this lovey-dovey kind of day and I couldn’t help but get lost looking through it all. My friend, Jessie, sent me a link for DIY website called design*sponge last week. As I was exploring the site, I saw a bunch of projects that caught my eye. The whole time I was thinking, too bad I don’t have tons of fabric just laying about…but I DO have lots of yarn!

So, I decided to start with a couple crochet projects. The first was a heart garland. I’m a beginner at crocheting, so it took me a bit to figure out the instructions and, needless to say, I didn’t really follow them very well resulting in variously sized crochet hearts. But, to be honest, I kind of like how some are thin and others are wide.

Now my room is all festive <3

As I finished making these hearts, I realized that I wanted to make a shirt for valentine’s day. I came up with several ideas and the one that stuck was a racer back tank top, held together in the back with a crochet heart. However, I’d want it to be a big crochet heart. Looking up designs led me to find another tutorial!  However, the heart was still too small for my liking [ new shirt today] and I already made a garland.  So what to do with the extra heart? Make a necklace! :]

I was still feeling crafty after all that, so I looked through my closet and found…a pink tank top with silver hearts! PERFECT! But what to do…
