Sweetheart Sugar Cookie Brooch

Happy Valentine’s Day! This heart-shaped crocheted cookie brooch has been one of my biggest sellers for many years. Now you can make one for yourself and one for your Valentine! Cookie brooches instantly add a touch of sugar to any sweater, jacket, or bag. I’ve also worn them as hair accessories—glued to hair clips and headbands. Use your favorite yarn colors and decorate with embroidered words, colorful cabochons, mini pom-pom sprinkles, or a rainbow array of bugle beads.
