Tutorial: Crochet Valentine Kisses

Sewing Daisies: Valentine Kisses

 

 

A few weeks back...

I was asked for the pattern for the Valentine Kisses.

(crochet hearts)

 

 

Unfortunately

it was just before the move so I wasn't able to respond.

(sorry S.!!)

The pattern I used

is from the fabulous artist & illustrator

Julia Crossland.

 

 

It is called

Teeny Tiny Heart Bunting.
