Heart of Gold Medal
"This pattern came about from a conversation about the cyber-bullying during this year’s Olympics. No matter what critics (or even fans) might say, you know what really matters is what’s in your heart. If you know someone who has a heart of gold, show them you see it with this special gold medal. This is an easy pattern, made in several pieces and seamed together. It's a fun way to use up some scraps, and is great for kids too!"
