Besides cupids, the only other thing I can think of when I think of Valentine’s Day are hearts.
To embellish the otherwise plain-looking hearts, I added some slip stitch designs, buttons and beads.
While I was at Red Heart website, I saw a little crochet bird appliques. I thought it would make a cute magnet.
Instead of using their version of the tail and wings, I modified each and came up with what I thought would look better. I also added some legs and tied a bead to each end. After I finished, it wasn’t what I expected it would look like. It is kind of ugly and silly.
