Valentine Pillows: The Sequel

Okay, I promised to show more details about these pillows that my very talented sis-in-law Kris made.

First of all, they are made out of the most gorgeous fabric - I wish you could see them in person! 

She cut out circles of fabric and tulle, folded them into fourths, and then just stitched across the corner of each - just enough to give the center a pinched look.

She opened up the circles, and pinned them onto her pillow fabric in the shape of a heart.  Then, she just ran the sewing machine all over the heart randomly, kind of making large S shapes, making sure she ran over every circle.  Make sense?


 You can see in the pictures that some of the edges stick up, making it look super textured.

I LOVE this technique! And the tulle just adds to it so much

Well, there they are - aren't they gorgeous?  She is an excellent seamstress, so all her stuff looks totally professional.  I'm jealous!  Thank you sooo much Kris!

Love those both, but a little partial to the b/w and hot pink! Too cute!

These are so CUTE, Beth. They don't look too difficult to make--I love the dimension of the flowers.
