  1. Can I sell the finished heart(s) after I make them? :)

  2. Hi! How do I make the heart bigger? More like a pillow

  3. Hey!
    Use the biggest size of yarn available and also double or triple the pattern, like 24 sc into the mr, Inc to 48 sc and sow on. I'm sure ur pillow will turn out very cute! Good luck!

  4. Thanks so much for this pattern! It's adorable!
