The gingerbread heart is a classic. It is one of my favourites. This was the heart that made me realise, that the strips need not be straight and that more of the surface of the heart may be integrated into the pattern.
I did not find a pattern for a gingerbread heart with only two strips on the internet. So you’d better get one now. I left the circles in the pattern so that you may figure out how it is constructed.
