Jazz up a Valentine's Day card with crochet!

How awesome is it to get a handmade card? I really appreciate the time, energy, and love goes into making one, as they make the gesture extra special. As crocheters, we sometimes feel a little left behind when it comes to making cards. However, I hope to inspire you to use your talent to make custom Valentine's Day notes. Think about it: the woolly substance of a crocheted heart (or another applique) adds a certain "snuggly" factor. Your recipient will certainly appreciate that!

Take a look at the amazing crochet creativity out there and get busy. Happy crocheting!

36. Crocheted Airmail Letter Pattern

Abbreviations:

  • sc= single crochet
  • ss= slip stitch
  • ch= chain

Pattern:
Front

  • In cream, ch 21, second stitch from hook sc in every stitch. Make about 19 rows, or until you have the desired height of your envelope front.
  • Starting 2 stitches from a corner, single crochet around the edge making 2 sc in each corner to turn the corner. At the sides use each row end as a guide on where to make your sc. End by slipping into the first sc of the edge.
  • With cream yarn, make 1 sc. With blue yarn, make 1 sc. With cream yarn, make 1 sc. Now add red yarn, and make 1 sc. Make sure to "carry" the yarn colors on the back of your project (similar to fair isle crochet). Carry on sc around the edge alternating the yarn colors "cream, blue, cream, red" etc. Finish off by slip stitching into the first sc and weaving the loose ends in. Don’t worry too much about how neat it is as you won’t be able to see it!

Decorate the front:

  • Add a rectangular piece of felt as a postage stamp.
  • Use pinking shears to add a crinkly edge to the stamp.
  • If you want, you can add a pretty button to the stamp.
  • On this envelope, the message "I heart U" is added by freehand embroidery and a heart-shaped piece of felt. You could, of course, put a different message or embroider the recipient's name.

Assembling the envelope:

  • Take an envelope and open up all the glued edged carefully. Put the folded out envelope on a large piece of felt and draw around it and cut it out. If the envelope shape doesn’t quite match trim it to fit. If you don’t have an envelope handy you can download the shape freely from the internet, for instance here.
  • Stitch the front of the envelope to the felt envelope back carefully around the edge using a simple straight stitch through the back loops of the edging only.
  • Fold the envelope sides in and fasten each side into the middle together with a cross stitch.

Now you have a beautiful handmade envelope for your valentine love note.
