Needlework: Valentine Heart Barrettes & Pins

I found this cute little Valentine Heart pattern here and the snap clips are from the Dollar Tree.   I simply sewed the valentine heart to the clip.  This is the smaller of the hearts in the directions.  Below are the larger hearts to which I attached a pin.  I used a G crochet hook and added a row of single crochet in white in the top photo.

Small amount of worsted weight yarn
G (4.5mm) or H (5.0mm) crochet hook
3/4 inch pin back
Needle and thread to match or hot glue

Small Heart Motif

Chain 4, make all stitches in the first chain. 3 trc, 3 dc, chain 1, 1 trc, chain 1, 3 dc, 3 trc, chain 2 slip stitch. Fasten off.

Sew or glue pin back to back of heart. Embellish with ribbon or yarn bow.

Large Heart Motif
