I got a new toy for Christmas. It’s a Silhouette Cameo. I am very, very excited and I guess you can expect to see lots of projects made with it in the future. I am so excited to show you my very first project ever with it today: (the first of many Valentine’s projects)
And it’s my first Valentine’s project for the year. Love it.
I was excited to try out fabric with my Silhouette since I am addicted to fabric. It worked like a charm.
I don’t think you have to have a Silhouette to make this though-so read on, even if you don’t have one.
Valentine Throw Pillows Tutorial:
About 3/4 yard of your main fabric (this will depend on your pillow size though)
Small amount of pink fabric
Small amount of white fabric
Heat N Bond
All you need to do is iron your Heat N Bond to your pink fabric in about the size you want your heart. Cut out a heart from your pink fabric.
Iron your Heat N Bond to your white fabric and cut out the letters for love. If you don’t have a cutting machine you can print out the letters from your computer to use as a pattern and cut them by hand.
Cut out the front of the pillow in your main fabric making it exactly the size of your pillow form.
Iron the heart in place. Then iron the letters in place.
To make the rest I am going to refer you to my tutorial on how to make an envelope pillow cover.
It’s as easy as that!
