Crocheting to Your Heart’s Content

Having trouble thinking of what to get a loved one? I made this for my girlfriend for Valentines day this year. I figured, if I was going to give her anything, why not give her my heart! 🙂
She liked it. 🙂 Here’s a few more photo’s of my most vital organ haha.
and of course my heart would be made out of yarn. 🙂
Because this was a special gift for her, I don’t plan on coming out with a pattern. Besides, I was only born with one! So this was my idea for her gift, what do you guys think? Mother’s day is coming up soon, and I’m always looking for some good ideas! Anybody have any?
