4 steps to heaven!

I wanted to design a heart to put onto a couple of wedding cards that I have to make this year and I thought I would share the progression with you all.

I have only used a cheapy size 20 thread to expeirment with but I will use finer threads for the real article!

Knowing that there are dozens of hearts out there in tat-land someone is bound to have done something similar to this one, therefore I will not be publishing a pattern for it! If anyone knows of someone elses pattern that is identical then please let me know. I have not studied anyone else's heart, but there is only so many ways of coming up with the same shape!

I've only seen some that are like #1 but I've never seen anything like #4 I love how it is! Are you going to post a pattern for it?

I especially like #3. I don't recall seeing any with a crown on the hump like that but sometimes they all seem a blur to me!

Thank you everyone for all your comments. It has really surprised me that several of you prefer numbers 1 throught 3! As far as I was concerned I hadn't got it right until I did number 4!
If the pattern of number 4 is truly unique I will definitely publish the pattern.

I prefer 1 and 4, the top part of 4 is unique.
