Stencil Heart Pillow

EVERYONE needs a heart pillow!   I have been wanting to make one for awhile so Charlotte and I finally got to work.

(Everyone also needs a church pew in their home.  My good friend Jill has one and when I saw hers I knew I had to have one.  Check craigslist :))

The church pew has become a reading place for the girls.  They LOVE sitting on it.  I thought it would be a great place for the HEART pillow so they could get nice and cozy.

But it also looks great on the sofa :)

The great thing about this project is that you hardly need anything to make it:

freezer paper
fabric paint
sewing machine

Cut out your front of the pillow fabric.  I always just set my pillow right on the fabric and make sure the pillow barely fits onto it.  You want your pillow to fit in there nice and snuggly!  The pillow looks so much better that way.

Cut out a back fabric piece and make sure it goes about 2/3 of the way over your front piece.

Then cut out one more back piece that goes just over half way.

Cut out your freezer paper to fit your fabric.

Then fold your freezer paper over and channel your 3rd grade self during Valentines season and cut out your heart :)

Center it onto your front fabric shinny side down and iron it on.

I used fabric paint for this because I want to be able to wash it.  If you are stenciling something that doesn't need to be washed there is no need for fabric paint.

I wanted to dark grey color so I mixed white and black.

Before you paint...make sure to add a piece of paper unto your project so it doesn't seep through all of your work space.

Paint and try not to push too much paint onto the edges so it doesn't seep under.

Charlotte helps me with any project.  Love her.

This is how I measure the fabric to make sure the pillow seems like a good fit.

Fold, iron, and sew your center edges on the back fabrics.

Place your back piece that goes about half way over face down onto your front piece.

Then place your wider back piece on, pin, and sew all the way around.

Turn inside out and stuff your pillow in.

My case seemed still to big for my pillow and sometimes this happens and I HATE pillow cases that are too big.  So I just turn it inside out again, sew closer, and trim off access.

Cutest little pillow and cutest little girl.

Give it a try.  Happy sewing!
