Heart Pillow Tutorial

Several weeks ago, I came across this darling pillow on Pinterest.

via pinterest

I was looking for a Valentine’s Day project and figured this one couldn’t be that hard to tackle! So off to the fabric store I went and picked up some burlap and red satin ribbon.  After a little work, I came up with my version.

To create your own, keep reading for a quick tutorial.

Cut two pieces of burlap into 12″ squares.  Sew up the edges on the sewing machine, making sure to leave an opening for pillow stuffing.

Turn the pillow right side out and run an iron over it to press the edges and corners flat.

Then cut a heart out of paper, to your desired size.  Thread your ribbon through a larger needle and start weaving the ribbon through the top layer of the burlap, around the heart.


 

To prevent the ribbon from unraveling, use a lighter to lightly singe the edges.  Tie a bow at the bottom of the heart, put a pre-made pillow insert into the cover or stuff it with bagged stuffing.  Stitch up the opening at the bottom and the pillow is complete!
