Pattern Description:

When I was little my dad always brought home big heart shaped balloons on Valentine's Day, and I couldn't have been more excited about it! Roses? Teddy bears? Jewelry? No thanks! I'll just take all of your balloons, please. Or, better yet, I'll practice all my favorite fill stitches and make some heart shaped balloons for myself that won't ever deflate.
