This week makes a great gift for couples, long distance or not. This project was inspired by this tutorial on A Beautiful Mess. I did a few things differently, to better suit my crafting style.
I started with grey pillowcases (four) blue chevron for the heart and yellow for the letters. (you will also need: Needle and thread or sewing machine, and sticker letters in the size you want)
I measured to see how tall the heart would need to be, cut the fabric in the appropriate sized square, folded it in half and cut out a heart. At this point I cut the heart and half:
tutorial on ABM except I sewed by hand, not with a sewing machine. I would recommend using a sewing machine, I how ever prefer the hand sewn route.
In case you don't want to pop over to ABM, here is what you do:
- Sew the yellow fabric on the back around the letters.
- Cut the letters out on the chevron, leaving the yellow poking through.
- Sew the heart on the pillow case.
- Repeat for HERS.
Hope you guys enjoy making pillow cases for your home!
