Crocheting has been a part of my life ever since I was a little girl, watching the women of my family crochet many wonderful gifts for all those they loved around them. Once I decided to pick up my own hook and yarn, my love and journey with the art of crochet has grown into a great passion.
Over these last 26 years I have learned to design my own patterns, enjoy the feel and textures of yarns and threads, and come to appreciate the many wonderful designs of fiber artist all over the world.
I began designing my own patterns some years ago, when I was having a hard time finding the patterns I needed to make things that inspired me. I have been offering many of my own designs and patterns to friends and family members since 1997. You will find that I love making patterns and designs that are simply, easy and fun.
What I love most about crocheting is the ability to share what I have created and I am now happy to be able to share them with you. I hope you will find all my patterns easy, useful and fun to make.

This is one of my free patterns that I designed and is featured on my website www. clayandcrochet.com
This particular pattern is a cute little heart applique. There are so many fun and creative things you can do with these little hearts. I have left on the tail ends here to create a balloon effect. Try using them on cards, or placemats, name tags...there are so many fun ideas you can use them for. Sew them on clothing, pillows, towels, etc...be creative and have fun with this one.
