Valentine's Day Gift Tags Printable + Free Amigurumi Crochet Patterns

With Valentine's Day around the corner, I know that many of you crafty crocheters are planning on gifting some handmade Valentines. If that's the case, I have the perfect freebie for you... 

Three FREE crochet patterns, plus matching Valentine Gift Tags!! 

    Download the free printable

    Get this cute set of Vday Gift Tags by signing up for my newsletter below! 

    This Valentine's card label pairs perfectly with several free crochet patterns that I have on my blog.  They make a great gift combo for children as well as your girlfriends (yay for Galentine's Day!) or boyfriends.  

    It's also perfect for your kids' preschool classes or elementary school classes. If you're making one for each classmate, you'll probably appreciate having a very easy and fast-to-work-up pattern that doesn't require any sewing.  These little cards have cute pun messages as well as a "to" and "from" field to fill out with your child's name. 

    This would also be a great gift option if you're a classroom teacher and want to surprise your students!

    Update (May 2023): My new Mosaic Goldfish pattern is another free no-sew amigurumi design that includes free gift tag printables. Check out the pattern page to get both!

    I have three Octopus doll patterns to choose from, so feel free to check them out below! Both of them (like Tiny-Rex above) are no-sew, meaning they are worked in one piece with no sewing needed. These are all super quick and easy stuffed animals to work up!

      2. Cut each tag out.
      3. Punch a hole through the circle on top of each tag.
      4. String a ribbon through the hole and tie it to the amigurumi stuffie you made!
