Crochet Heart Clothing Patch

My daughter loves crafting. The other day she was using her kid scissors and accidentally caught her dress and snipped a hole right in it! I sewed up the hole, but since it was quite a jagged edge (and I'm not very good at sewing) it was nearly impossible to sew it straight and clean.

 

My daughter also loves purple. She rarely wears an outfit that doesn't have purple in it somewhere. I decided to crochet a cute little purple heart to cover up the unsightly sewing job and to add a cute little detail to her dress. Now it's one of her favourite dresses!
