Row 2: Ch 1, turn, 3 sc in first st. (3 sc)
Row 3: Ch 1, turn, 2 sc in first st, sc in next st, 2 sc in last st. (5 sc)

*Row 11 starts the first bump on top the heart. You will not continue across the entire row of 12 stitches (you will stop halfway across the row and turn).
Row 11: Ch 1, turn, sc in first 5 sts, sc in ch-2 sp. (6 sc)
Row 12: Ch 1, turn, 2 sc in first st, sc in next 4 sts, 2 sc in last st. (8 sc)
Row 13: Ch 1, turn, sc2tog, sc in next 4 sts, sc2tog. (2 sc2tog, 4 sc; 6 total sts)

Row 15: Ch 1, turn, sc2tog, sc2tog, fasten off and weave in tail. (2 sc2tog)
*Now you will start the second bump. Hold/turn your work so the first bump is on the right. Attach your yarn on the left side (to the 1st stitch of Row 10). Then repeat Rows 11-15 to make the second bump. DO NOT fasten off once you finish Row 15. With your yarn still on your hook, ch 1, turn work, and sc evenly around the entire perimeter of the heart to finish it. Work 4 sc in the bottom point of the heart to create a more pointed appearance. When working your way around and back down the first hump, place a slip stitch in the ch-2 sp from Row 10 of the body of the heart. Then continue to sc evenly up the 2nd bump. Once you reach back to where you started, slst in the first sc made when you started the edging and fasten off. Weave in all loose ends.
***Once you finish weaving in all loose ends, your Lovely Heart Button-On Appliqué is ready to be placed on a ½-inch button.
