With Valentine's Day coming up in a few weeks, I decided to try my hand at designing a heart. The pattern can be found in my Etsy shop.

You will need to supply your own filigree jewelry finding for this pattern (more details in the listing), or you could make the version with the tatted center.
This is the first heart that I have designed and I found it to be much more difficult than making snowflakes! I think it has to do with trying to get the shape right. I have no idea how other tatters manage to design things like animals. Maybe I will get there someday.
Here's an idea of the finished size, using Lizbeth size 20 thread:
I had a lot of fun playing with the design in different colors and different jewelry findings. I think I like the square filigree center best, but I'm wondering if there are heart shaped centers that would also work.
