Crochet Heart Sachet
This crochet heart sachet is not for the faint of heart. In fact, it's one of the most difficult projects we've encountered. Not because of the basic design, but simply because one wrong stitch can easily distort the entire pattern.
If you don't mind risking the possibility of starting over a couple of times in order to get it just right, then by all means go for it.
Who knows? You might luck out and get it perfect on your first attempt!
