I love Pottery Barn and it’s always fun to be inspired by their beautiful pillows and bedding.
I saw this Heart pillow and thought “I can make this” for less than $29.50 and show you how too.
I had the fabric and craft paint in my stash so it cost me 0 to make but if you need to go buy fabric and a bottle of craft paint it would probably cost approx. under $3 to make.
This took about an hour to make and here’s how:
Here’s the Pottery Barn Pillow for $29.50.
What you need to make it:
White Fabric 14″ x 14″
Red Scrap fabric for Heart
White craft paint
Pillow Form or Stuffing
Cut your pillow square. Cut heart from red scrap. I just drew it free hand.
Now if you are great at embroidering or you have the attachment on your sewing machine, then embroidering your monogram will be fantastic. Yet, if you’re like me then draw your monogram on paper or a paper plate. You can even print one out from your computer.
Lay your fabric over it and I could see through and then I lightly penciled the monogram onto the fabric.
Paint over your monogram.
I just took my time and did it free hand. I did two little coats of paint and then set it aside to dry.
I used my favorite product in the whole world – Heat n Bond and cut a heart 1/2″ smaller than my red heart.
Then iron it onto the back of your heart.
Then peel the white paper back and you’ll see the sticky adhesive backing.
Place a napkin over it and press the red heart onto the white fabric. This will also set the paint too.
Sew the red heart onto the white fabric. You can whip stitch it like they did or I chose to machine stitch and sewed around twice so the white was a little brighter.
Whenever I sew I think back to my dad and how he bought me my first sewing machine when I was about 12 years old and it was the best thing he could have done for me. I started practicing and then I took every Home Ec. class I could and LOVED it. We didn’t have a lot of money so I learned to make my own clothes and was able to create what my friends were wearing. I even got good enough to make our Prom Dresses too. It all started with pillows though. So if you’re not the best seamstress a pillow like this is the perfect thing to make. I think we made a skateboard shaped pillow with three strips of fabric on the front. It was hideous but I’ll never forget that….lol.
Snip the heart edges in tiny snips so it has the frayed edge look.
Sew white fabric together leaving one area open at the bottom for stuffing. Stuff pillow and sew closed.
That’s how you make this cute Pottery Barn Inspired Heart Pillow.
I’m very excited and honored that my pillow is being featured at KnockOffDecor.com. Please go on over and check it out.
