handmade Valentine card ... string art in the shape of a heart ... strings in rainbow array of colors meet and cross in the center ... clean and simple ... pretty heart ...
(Used this mostly as inspiration for Ellie's 1st birthday banner.) Didn't use paint-chips. (Seriously people, that's basically stealing.) Cut hearts with Cricut (about 2.5"). Cut "Happy Birthday" w/ Cricut (1.5"). Glued letters to hearts, punched holes in the tops and strung coordinating ribbon through to hang. Took two hours, off and on.
Working Row 2: 1 – at the end of R1, 2 – rotate work and yarn over for hdc (that is htr if UK), 3 – insert hook into centre of heart, 4 – after working the first heart, 5 & 6 – hook over and under the sl-st and ch between the hearts, 7 – draw up a loop, 8 – complete the sl-st by drawing first loop through second.
