I whipped this up yesterday as a Valentine to stick inside my husband's lunchbag. We don't do a lot to celebrate V-Day. It's too commercialized for our taste. So, I thought a little homemade gift would be cute. This pattern hasn't been tested, but it works up in about an hour if you want to try it out.

That is a good idea. We don't do much for V-day either, just a special meal, as it is our Anniversary (38 years). I like this idea and he does like little things.:hook

Thank you for your pattern. I made one for myself, then was going to make one for a friend and had the center done but not the edging and got side tracted on to a dishcloth. So... guess where the heart ended up. :hook Look in the Kitchen show n tell - Angel Heart. Thanks again :hug

Don't worry every knot can be undone.
Just don't let the cat help, it will be more interesting, but will take a lot longer. :D
