A little Valentine’s pillow tutorial

I’ve been working on another little Valentine’s day project.  I swear I have more hand-sewn Valentine’s Day decorations than any other holiday. St. Patrick’s Day is particularly neglected. I finally realized it all has to do with January. A month with no major busy holidays, inside-only weather and some actual time on my hands.

My project was inspired by this garland made by Stephanie of Stephmodo a couple of years ago. (Stephanie is one of the most effortlessly stylish people I’ve ever met.) I’ve always loved this image and decided it would be fun to recreate with fabric.

 I like how it also mimics the hearts on the Snoa fabric from Ikea.

And guess what? Today I’m sharing a tutorial to make your own over at UCreate!  It’s a great project for those favorite scraps you haven’t been able to part with. It’s so easy too. You could whip one up this weekend. Honestly.

Have a happy weekend!
