This project was submitted by one of our readers, just like you.
"Show your love to someone special with this soft and squishy heart. The simple heart shapes are seamed with a decorative edging, to make a Valentine pillow you’ll love to squeeze. Remember to make one for yourself too! This pattern uses a modified decrease, as well as crab stitch/reverse single crochet for the edging. Optionally, this would be a great project for felting. A link to a felting tutorial is provided in the pattern. I originally received the fiber fill for free from Fairfield for another project."
