If you’re looking for a versatile heart pattern that can take on many different “personalities,” this basic crochet heart applique is a fantastic choice. The pictures below show you just a few different possibilities for different ways you could style it.
Materials Needed to Crochet This Applique:
You can use just about any sort of yarn, thread or fiber to crochet this little heart-shaped applique. Additionally, you’ll need a crochet hook in a comfortable size for working with your chosen material. A tapestry needle is useful for weaving in ends, and for stitching your applique to another crochet or knitting project. You may also want to choose some other pretty accents like ribbons, buttons, beads or smaller appliques to embellish your heart.
If you don’t add any embellishments, a little round hole will be visible in the center area of the heart shape. There are ways to take advantage of the hole as a design feature; for example, you could sew a round, three-dimensional button onto a hat or other project, and then use the hole as a buttonhole for “buttoning” the heart onto the hat. You’d probably also want to stitch the heart to the hat (or project) to secure it better.
