Hello, hi & welcome back! I'm excited to share my Crochet Heart Pillow free crochet pattern! This crochet heart pillow is designed to fit a standard sized gift card, money, a Valentine, candy or small toys! It is the perfect thoughtful, handmade Valentine's gift idea!
Each Crochet Heart Pillow is comprised of a front, back, and pocket. The pocket is stitched onto the back using a tapestry needle. The front and back are joined together with a round of single crochet and stuffed with Polyfil. The finished heart measures approximately 7 inches tall by 5.75 inches wide. You could easily create a larger heart by using a larger crochet hook with thicker yarn.

Most all of my patterns can be found in printable versions in my Etsy Shop. My printable crochet patterns are condensed, ad-free PDFs written for those of us who prefer to work from a paper pattern instead of a screen.
I love a good video tutorial! This video tutorial of Crochet Heart Pillow (Valentine Crochet Gift) is designed as a visual tool to go along with the written pattern found here on my blog. Don't forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel for more fun patterns and tutorials!

Join the front and back of the heart with a row of single crochet (slip stitch in the center of the top in between the curves), adding stuffing before completely closing and tying off.
Weave in ends and trim any excess yarn.
