Cute 'n' cozy heart-shaped pillows

 
Whether you’re throwing a V-Day bash or just want to get crafty with your besties, we’ve got the perfect DIY project for you—just in time for the love holiday! Making heart-shaped pillows is simple, fun and oh-so adorable. So get your girls and supplies together (you can find everything you need at a fabric or craft store) and get started!

 

You will need...

This heart template

Fabric in pink, red and Valentine’s Day patterns

Scissors

Needle and thread

Stuffing

 

The basics

Pick out the fabric you want to use and then fold it in half. Print the template and place it on the fold, and then cut along the edges to get a symmetrical heart half. Do the same step again on another fold of fabric. Sew the two pieces together with the right sides facing in, but don’t sew the whole heart together yet. Leave a little room to put your stuffing in, and then stitch it together.

 

Heart pillow, 2.0

You can use a copy machine (or your comp) to easily resize our template, making it as large or small as you want it to be. Make a bunch in different sizes to toss on your bed. Make a huge one to give to your bestie. Make a teeny one and attach a loop of ribbon , then drape over a door handle or Mom’s rearview mirror. The possibilities are endless!

 

Dress it up

Got the nitty-gritty down? Glam up your pillow by sewing on sequins or hot-gluing rhinestones. Create a sachet by filling it with dried lavender. Get cutesy with felt and embroidery floss. The options are endless!
