Every occasion is good to crochet something, even little !!!!

As right yesterday !!!!
It was a friend's B-Day, so I decided to pimp up (just a little !) her gift box adding a crocheted ribbon and a granny heart, as a tag ..

The ribbon was really easy to make ! I collected a 4mm hook, some yellow acrylic yarn (from my stash : I think I bought it a couple of years ago in Singapore!) and then I chained 8 chains to work (more or less) 100 rows in DCs !!!!
I added to it a nice granny heart : I did follow the pattern by Lauren Granny Heart Crochet Pattern {Daisy in the centre}, pattern that finds its inspiration from the Sunburst Granny Hearts by Jacquie/Bunny Mummy !!!!
I crocheted some of these Jacquie's granny hearts in some other occasions (herehereherehereherehere and here ….. yes, hearts galore indeed!!!!!) and I was very curious to re-crochet some more of these motifs and so I did …

…. and some of them are hanging from one of my wooden trees right now ….

…. and to be more precise, please note that the sunburst motif in the middle of my hearts is the same used here !!!!

P.S. : in the gift box I put some balls of yarn plus a couple of hooks to teach my friend how to crochet !!! We had a lot of fun and laughs together yesterday afternoon!!! ;oD
