Valentine Heart Pillow


I wasn't thinking about Valentine's Day at all until I got Amy Smart's (Diary of a Quilter) newsletter and saw a tutorial for this cute little pennant heart pillow. I remembered Janine's post about "Drop Everything and Make It", so I did, and it was almost-instant gratification. In fact it took longer to pick out my fabric scraps than sewing it.



The hearts involve using a pattern for the preferred shape, backing them with fusible interfacing, stitching them into place, and connecting them with embroidery thread. It was easy and fun.


Jack always wants to make sure my projects pass the sniff-test.



This little pillow is now on its way to my daughter's house to add to her seasonal pillow collection from Mom.

  2. So cute! It might have taken you a bit of time to pick out those scraps, but it was worth it. I especially like the tiny hearts marching across the black fabric. I think Jack does, too. Lucky daughter of yours.

    1. Janine that black one is my fave! Well the "lucky" part works both ways I think. ;)

  3. This is so adorably cute! And it does look doable, even for a sewing klutz like me.
