Valentine's Day Pillows

Let's start with Happy Friday! :o)

Are you sick of all the Valentine's Day stuff yet?

Well, I sure hope not because I have a couple of more projects for you. :o)

Starting with this one...

Valentine's Day Pillows!

Random Not So Fun Fact: I have 2 very ugly pillows in my home.

Ugly, huh.

Well, the other day I had finally had enough of their ugliness, and decided to make some cute slip covers for them.


I got the idea HERE, and just kind of ran with it.

I grabbed some scraps of fleece that I had left over from another project, and just started sewing.

The red ruffled one was kind of an afterthought...

 I basically just started piecing parts together, and this was the result.

Pretty cute for an afterthought though. :o)

For this one I did a little more planning.

I sewed the little pink hearts on by hand, but you could easily use your sewing machine to do this.

They are a little crooked, but hey, let's just call that character! :o)

NOTE: These are a great project for beginning me (ok, I am not a beginning sewer...I am just not a very talented one). :o)

Remember, fleece is forgiving, which is a BIG plus.

Well, I think they turned out pretty darn cute!

What do you think?

Happy Friday!

Oh, and Have Wonderful Weekend!

Pin It!
