My Grandma Hearts Garland

Fun Granny Hearts

I Love Hearts!

Last night I made two granny hearts...a red one and a white one from Michelle's The Royal Sisters Grandma Hearts tutorial (here).   I crocheted the white/red heart last year. 

They aren't perfect but I love them anyways.   

And it's simple to make more....gosh wouldn't pink and white be pretty too! 

Today I found some Lion Brand Yarn "Fun Fur" in red in my yarn stash to embellish them.  I single crocheted around the white/red  and white hearts with the red "Fun Fur" yarn and added a cute 3 picot edging around the red heart in white cotton yarn.  This is my first time to use "Fun Fur".    I'm going to buy more of this type of yarn it is so pretty.  I used a H hook for the whole project.
