Valentine's Heart Pillow

Valentine's day is on its way! A few years ago I made this heart shaped pillow for my husband. I didn't use any sort of pattern and I'm not the greatest at sewing, but I wanted to make him something unique and meaningful to him.

I used one of my favorite fabrics and cut it into a heart shape. On one side I cut open a square panel and sewed in a piece of Aida cloth.

 I cross stitched the words to "I Knew I Loved You" by Savage Garden. This is "our song" because we met online and fell in love before we actually ever met in person.

Here is a closeup of the stitching and beads that I sewed into the fabric.

It's been a few years and a few kids since I made this pillow...the shape is starting to look a little squished. It's the first thing I ever made for my husband...the first thing like this anyone has ever made for him. It's those small meaningful gifts that make the holiday special...taking the time to show someone you care! :)

Thanks for visiting! Have a great day, everyone!
