{{{Valentine Pillows}}}

27 Jan
I never really decorated for Valentine’s Day, until last year. And then it was like a big light bulb went off in my head!  
Now I think Valentine’s Day is in my top 3 favorite holidays to make projects for. 
 
Here’s a little project I made last week, using cute fabric, heat transfer material and my Silhouette.
{{Valentine’s Pillows}}

I wanted to make some pillows with a kind of modern twist!
And if you don’t have a Silhouette machine, you could still totally make these. All you need to do is print out an image and then put the image behind your heat transfer material and trace the image onto the heat transfer material. Then cut it out with scissors or an exacto knife. You might have to hold the image paper and heat transfer paper up to a window while you trace it out.
I made the heart using the Silhouette software and then downloaded the thought bubble from the Silhouette Online Store.
The pillows are simple, flap backed pillows with a 4 inch overlap in the back. 
**And my secret to pillows that keep a nice shape is this — after making the pillow covers, turn them right side out and iron them flat. Then sew a tiny seam all around the edges of the pillows. This keeps a nice, sharp edge.
Now I have some festive pillows for the 14th!!  
Yay!! 
And, if you follow TT&J on Facebook, you know that I am in Nashville at Blissdom!! I have met so many fun bloggers so far. It’s so fun!! We had a little party tonight where I was able to hang out with Beckie from Infarrantly, Kami from No Bigggie, Lorie from Be Different, Act Normal, Allison from House of Hepworth’s, Mique from 30 Handmade Days and April from Funky, Vintage Kitchen. Plus so many more cute girls!!! {Kellie from This Blessed Nest took this picture — she is so adorable IRL too}
Have a Super Day!!!!
