It's nice to take time to appreciate those you love but, let's be honest, Valentines day is not everyones cup of tea. Red Roses, Chocolate Hearts, or candle-lit dinners - been there, done that, have come out the other end - now totally indifferent……. so I'm not going to go on about love… or romance.
Having said that, I do love the paraphernalia…. but that can be just as much fun without all the sugary stuff.
So for those of you who are…, or who are not, doing Valentines Day, for whatever reason…. but like the odd heart or two, here's a nice little project .
'Crochet hearts', I hear you say, 'they're everywhere'.
Yes' that's true and they look great - but I wanted to push it further and make something extra pretty and, in true thredHED style,
... a little bit useful.
These little lights instantly perk up a dark corner and look pretty at the same time. Made from crocheted hearts, sewn together and reinforced to make little filigree shades for a chain of LED fairy lights (and I must stress LOW VOLTAGE LED). Use can use any fibre yarn - it's great for using up your stash.
They can be red and racy, hot pink, or muted pastels for that vintage look….or why not mix 'em up. Which ever way you choose they do look nice…. and if you like a bit of crochet you can make them. Here's how - for a limited period of time, my pattern and instructions are free to download to all fans of my thredHED face book page.
