Crochet this quick heart using some scrap fabric you may have. You can recycle items like pillowcases or clothes no longer in use. This works best with woven fabrics, not T-shirt type stretchy materials. You cut up the fabric into a long strip. The size of the heart will depend on how wide you cut.
Give the heart to your friends on Valentine’s day, attach anywhere as applique, use as Christmas tree ornament or join many hearts for a party bunting. The heart also works great as a key ring.
