The original tutorial for this heart comes from the wonderfully talented Lucy at Attic24. I'll never look at pipe cleaners in the same way again! I chose to cover the pipe cleaners in my project with a band of double crochet. I also used 20 flowers instead of 18 and sewed them on rather than gluing. For the flower detail I used french knots and some East of India heart shell buttons.
I used Scheepjes Catona Yarn which can be purchased by contacting the lovely Sue at Sweetpea Family Blog.
