Knitted Heart Craft #2: Wearable Pin
This may seem like a cop-out after the lengthy tutorial on Heritage Flag Hot-Pad making, however, I have had these little knitted hearts lying around for a few days now, and when I pinned one to my t-shirt today, I immediately felt my spirits rise! All you need is one knitted heart in the color of your choice, and a hat pin. Weave the pin through the heart and your clothing, and be sure the end of the pin is tucked inside the heart, and not against your skin. Presto! Cupid Couture.
Knitted Heart Craft #3: Heartwarming Hanging Garland
I admit it, I’m a sucker for sewn garlands. After making the Halloween T-shirt ghost garland, and the 3D paper pom-pom garlands, I’ve really come to appreciate the smallest chain of patterns hanging in my home. Threading a thin ribbon through each heart, tying a simple square knot and then stringing another heart onto your ribbon will give you immediate gratification and an instant boost to your holiday decor!
Knitted Heart Craft #4: Necklace
Love that garland so much you wish you could wear it? You can. A row of 8-inch knitted chain ends up making a heart about three inches in diameter. TOTALLY WEARABLE. Hey, I wore a Kermit the Frog neck garland… so why wouldn’t I wear a knitted heart garland?
Knitted Heart Craft #5: Valentine’s Day Card Embellishment
Lets say you are not into the wearable hearts. No biggie. By linking two different colored hearts together, you have a visually captivating embellishment that makes an easy and quick Valentine’s Day card!
I took one 12×12 piece of red paper, folded it fourths, and then with a needle and thread, I stitched both hearts to one of the lower corners of the paper.
When I folded my paper back up, the stitches were hidden inside the fold!
I love them as a garland. Cool!

Oh, what cute creations! I really love the garland and card.
I saw it first as the Danish flag, but then I realized the blue shining through, and had to come and see if it was Norwegian flag, and it was! Well done!
I have to say that I don’t know about Norway, but in Finland (my home country) there is a law against using flags in objects like this… it is considered disrespectful… But I also understand that there is no disrespect meant with this.

Today I featured you and your knitting forks on my blog. Thanks for the inspiration!
I see the link to an esty page, but I can’t find your shop. Can you provide a link to that page? If I can find a place to buy the fork, does it come with instructions?
