Pottery Barn Inspired Heart Pillow

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:

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.

I know this week has been Valentine’s heavy but I promise I have some other great projects I’ll be sharing that have nothing to do Love and Hearts.

I’m linking up to a few of my favorite blogs today Katherines Corner, Over 50 Feeling 40 , Model Savings and Vintage Mama.  They are hosting link parties full of loads of a great ideas, diy, crafts, furniture makeovers and a whole lot more and if you have a minute go on over for loads more beautiful inspiration.

Need a little more inspiration?  You could make a Valentine’s LOVE Banner, or you could make or redo your Mantel with Old Windows, or your could bake some Heart Cakes filled with Love, or you could whip up some Chocolate Covered Pretzel Treats, or your could make a Valentine’s Heart Tablecloth, or even some Pottery Barn inspired Monogram Napkins.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fabulous day, Lisa
