Since Valentine’s Day is this weekend, it seemed like the right thing to do to make a little love pillow.
I found a bag of all pink buttons at the dollar store a few weeks ago, and they inspired the project. I used some cloth I had, actually a piece of a drop cloth from the hardware store. I used a fading marker (you can find them at the fabric store and they work really great for sewing projects of all starts) and just wrote the word love on the fabric to use as a guide line for sewing the buttons on.
After the buttons were all stitched on, I made an easy envelope pillow case, which makes the pillow cover so easy to change seasonally and store without the trouble of a zipper.
It certainly makes for a cozy and pretty spot to read on a winter’s day.
It would make a lovely, inexpensive little Valentine’s Day present too.
With a pretty little love pillow, life really is a party!
