This heart was made from a crochet pattern thatI found on easymakesmehappy.blogspot.com. I never usually follow patterns exactly. But this pattern is perfect.
The yarn I used is actually a red slinky fabric that has been cut by a big machine. It is really stiff so it maintains its shape whether it is filled or unfilled. The hole that closed up when I did the last stitch is where I loosen it up to hide stuff inside. Then I tighten it and stick the tail inside.
