I found that St. Patrick’s Day is a wonderful opportunity to be creative. Earlier I published a St. Patrick’s Day crochet Unicorn applique. The face of this crochet Unicorn is made in the shape of a heart and both these appliques – the Unicorn and Shamrock in a Hat continue my series of Heart Shaped Creations.
