Love, love, love - Valentine Rag Pillow covering

What!!! Another pillow!!  Yes, I make tons of pillows.....1) super easy to make, 2) "hello" they are too cute and 3) you can never have to many pillows.  But this one is special.......it's for Valentine's Day!!  ♥ <smooch, smooch>


Using all my red scraps!!
Sewed my bow-tie garland!! I really wanted to leave it on the wall! :^(
I cut all the bows off of the thread and positioned them on the white paisley fabric I used, I then pinned them, then sewed them on!!  Lots of work!! 
Here it is before sewing the back on.



I just love Valentine's day, not only cause it's a day of love, but because I get to eat chocolate without the guilt!! (",)

And it's just around the corner.....this year is already flying!

  20. Cute, cute! I made a burlap garland like that. Fun idea to make it into a pillow. I agree, you can NEVER have enough pillows. Hubby sometimes disagrees when he has to remove 11 of them off of our bed at night. lol!

  24. cute and comfy !!! i'd have to keep it away from a certain cat who would have it smushed and hairy in no time.

    i'm visiting from Rednesday (although I couldn't use that link ... ??) ... you have a fun blog and i'm venturing a guess that you are a high-energy person !!!
