Welcome to the home of this little guy! The Amigurumi Heart Plush pattern was inspired by Valentine's Day! The day and month of love, chocolate, and more chocolate! It features Lion Brand Jeans yarn in Bermuda Shorts. It is so soft that I would have guessed it was cotton but it is sure enough 100% acrylic and the colors are absolutely beautiful!
For this pattern, I tried using one strand but it was difficult to sew and have an even heart. Holding two strands of Lion Brands Jeans worked very well because it holds it's shape better.
