"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."
