An easy-to-sew gift for Valentine's Day.
These were made last year following this tutorial (http://jessicapeck.blogspot.com/2011/01/valentine-candy-heart-pillows-tutorial.html?m=1). I used felt and poly fill stuffing, but brightly colored fleece would be cute too.
One was made using felt letters, the other with a really bad satin stitch on my machine (I do NOT recommend this unless you are very good with embroidery.) Trying to cut corners and save time the night before the holiday didn't work out so well.
These have been through the washing machine a few times (line dried), hence the pilling.
In spite of that, they are a much-loved decoration around here this time of year. Have a very sweet Valentine's Day!
