Valentine's Day was fun, and I enjoyed receiving letters, cards and notes from my loved ones. Now that February is drawing to a close, it's time for me to figure out what to do with all these treasures -- they've been proudly displayed on my fridge, but I can't keep them there indefinitely.

Enter the "love note keeper."

I've been working on some ideas for making love note keepers using decorated crocheted hearts. The plan is to stitch two hearts together, leaving an opening up one side for inserting the notes. I'll be adding a button and button loop for a closure. The top heart will be decorated and embellished, and I might also add some sort of pretty strap for hanging.

I haven't actually finished my love note keeper quite yet, because I got sort of distracted by all the possibilities for decorating it. I came up with so many ideas I like that I am thinking I might end up making several of them.

The photo you see above is just one idea; I've posted a couple more, and I have even more photos that haven't been uploaded yet. So, please check back soon to see even more ideas!

Update: Love Note Keeper Completed!

I've now posted the pattern and instructions for a heart-shaped crochet pouch. Enjoy!

A very creative idea. I know what you mean about getting distracted by all the possiblitease :) I especially like he flower it’s really pretty. Your joined hearts would make cute pillows too.
