Easy Crochet Valentine’s Day Basket

Crochet Valentine's Day Basket by The Stitchin' Mommy https://www.thestitchinmommy.com

Since Valentine’s Day is just a short time away, I thought it would be nice to do something a little festive (even though I’m not really into V-day this year). I didn’t want to deprive Kaylee of all of the love and hearts so I whipped up this adorable little heart basket for her, fully equipped with her favorite treats (Goldfish of course). You can fill it with candy or treats, add a little card, and you have a cute and easy Valentine for your little Valentine. I got the cute printable Valentine’s Day Card from here if you want to check it out 🙂 I hope you enjoy the pattern! Happy Crocheting!
