Ss into the middle (space between the two half-circles of the heart). Make ss into the 1st stitch of this row. Finish off.

Take all ends to the backside of the heart.

Weave in ends. This is what the heard looks like from front and back.

Make many hearts. String up hearts and beads on a cord made of chains, and/or add another color by slip stitching a row on the front side of the heart.

Enjoy!
