Granny's Crocheted Heart and Headband Pattern

It seems we just packed away our Christmas decorations and patterns and now VALENTINES DAY is just around the corner!!! If you are anything like me, you like to do something unique for those loved ones in your life.  Sure you COULD go to the store and save yourself some......yarn???? LOL 

This sweet Granny's Crocheted Heart can be stitched up so quickly and added to the Granny's Headband.  OR you could add a magnet, pin back, or hair clip to the back.  Maybe you could stitch two together, leaving the point on the end open and stick it on top of a lollipop or cute pencil.  The applications are ENDLESS!!!!  And so quick to stitch you could make one for every student in your childs class!!

***Feel free to make as many of these as you want for profit, but remember to give credit to me, Amy B Stitched, or link back to this page!!***

FINISH HEADBAND: Lay headband on table with seam centered on the back.  Position Granny’s Heart on the front in the desired position.  Use the 12 inch length of yarn to stitch the heart securely to the headband. 

GRANNY’S HEART LOLLIPOP COVER: Make 2 hearts, leaving a 12 inch length on one heart and weaving in the tail on the other heart.  Stack the hearts with wrong sides together.  Using the 12 inch length of yarn, stitch the top half of the heart together (you may want to weave the tail lower before you begin stitching to have a smaller opening to keep the lollipop from falling out OR tie a bow with a bit of ribbon. Either way it's super cute!!)

  5. Amy, I enjoy your header. Thanks for sharing your gift.

    That picture of the lolly pops in the group is great. How did you get them to stay up?

    This looks like a very quick project. ;)

  6. Hi Sara!! Thanks for your encouragement!!
    The lollipops were actually very easy to prop. The picnic table that I was working on had some very large gaps due to the cracks from sun and humidity. In one of those cracks I found a loose piece of board that I wedged them in the crack with (if you look closely you can see the wedge at the bottom).
    Quick project indeed!!! I like to offer quick (and cute) projects for the beginners that follow me :D
