Crochet Heart Shaped Bag or Pillow for Barbie

This great pattern whips up in less than 10 minutes and I thought turning it into a little Heart Shaped Bag or Pillow for Barbie would be cute for Valentine's Day. The magic circle closes up nicely and makes a solid heart. Barbie's thrilled with her new bag, and it's soooo much less fattening than chocolate:)

You might want to make the strap long enough to go across her body, 
this does have a tendency to want to slip off her shoulder.

I used regular worsted weight yarn and an H hook, my hearts are a tad less than 3".
To make a pillow simply add a little stuffing (or a few cotton balls) and sew it closed.
Maybe add a white single crochet border, could also be pretty...
 These cute hearts would make a great garland or ornaments too!

Heart-from Crochet Leaf-please stop by her blog for a detailed picture tutorial! HERE.
Make a magic circle. There's a good u-tube about how to make the magic circle HERE.
Round 1~ Chain 2, 15 DC into ring, slip stitch into top of first DC.
Round 2~ Chain 2, 1 DC into same stitch, 4 TC in next stitch, 2 DC in next stitch, 1 HDC in the next 4 stitches.
1 DC, 1 TC, 1 DC into the next stitch (makes the point of the heart).
1 HDC in the next 4 stitches, 2 DC in next stitch, 4 TC in next stitch, 1 DC in next stitch, Chain 2, slip stitch into same stitch. You can stop by Crochet Leaf to see how to slip stitch from the back so the heart looks neater.
Fasten off, pull magic circle closed and weave in ends.
Make two hearts for either the bag or pillow.

Barbie says a girl can never have too many purses😉
