Easy Valentine's Day Crocheted Projects.

Updated on January 24, 2011

Make up your mind to be happy. Learn to find pleasure in simple things.

Robert Louis Stevenson

One of my favorite hobbies is crocheting and it has brought me hours upon hours of relaxation, plus the thrill of having made something with my own two hands. My sister taught me how to crochet when I was about 10 or so, and I crocheted little things here and there. It wasn’t until later around my thirties that I really started getting into crocheting for gift giving as well as for profit. I do have a store at Etsy and I enjoy it very much. I really do not make much money from Etsy but I do earn money from private orders from friends or people who have seen my website and commission me to make an afghan or something like that. People love the idea of gift giving homemade gifts but sometimes it is hard to find the time to do it themselves, which I do not blame them.

I can crochet while I am watching a movie or television, which sometimes irritates my husband, because he doesn’t believe that I can pay attention to the movie while crocheting. I jokingly tell him that maybe a man can’t but surely a woman is the expert at multitasking and can easily crochet and pay attention to the plot of a movie for heaven’s sake. Women can talk on the phone; pay their bills online, change a diaper all while cooking dinner lol.

I think purple and blue would also be cute for these hearts.

Stuffed Hearts

Anyway, I found a couple of projects for Valentine’s Day that I came across that I thought were adorable. So I am posting them here on this website and I will also post the website where I got the patterns.

The first picture is of amigurumi stuffed hearts with little faces on them. You can make them all different colors if you like, whatever you want to do.

You will need some stuffing and about 2 oz's of yarn of the colors you want and two round buttons for eyes. Remember that this is not for children and be careful with the eyes as they can come off.

Pretty Heart Wreath

The second picture is a wreath that is very easy to make. It looks harder than what it was to make but it was very easy to put together. You can also include a flower with ribbon in the center but I chose to put an old fashioned button in the center with the ribbon. You can also make this all different colors as well; you don’t have to limit yourself to red and light pink for the wreath.

For this project you will need a styrafoam heart or circle or whatever form you want and some yarn as well as ribbon and flowers or however you wish to embellish it.

Well hope you enjoyed my latest creations and if you need any help with anything associated with crocheting and I will be happy to answer or at least try to. Happy Valentine’s Day.

    I like the Robert Louis Stevenson quote, it's sage advice. I'm not big on crotcheting, although I take more pride in something I've made, than something I've bought.
