This pretty Christmas Tree or door handle decoration is very simple to make. It is made from two heart shapes knitted in stocking stitch. The hearts are then joined together and stuffed using kapok, foam or beans (add some lavender leaves for scent if you wish). The hanging loop is a crochet chain length. The embroidered embellishments are blanket stitching around the edge with chain stitch and daisy daisy stitch for the flower and leaves.
