These hearts will work so well with my Country Christmas theme. I can also see these as part of a garland for either the tree or a mantel place. These would also make perfect Valentines Day decorations as well. They are nicely plain, so adding embellishments like ribbons, roses, or beads would work as well. You could even embroider initials, names, etc. A very versatile pattern.

Such a neat idea. I read thru the directions and they are very simple. You can do them in different color combos such as red and green, white and green or even in golds and silvers. They would also look great on gift packages. Or made into a pony tail tie for your little ones for Valentines Day
