I made this pillow several years ago using one of my husbands' old dress shirts. I challenged myself to make somethinig with hearts that was modern and masculine.
I made the selvage hearts using my Pockets of Love pattern.
Last Valentine's I played with this idea of using 2 1/2 inch strips to make points around the heart.
As you can see, over time the points got bent and twisted.
This year I went back to the men's shirt idea and incorporated the floating heart concept.
This time my points are prairie points!
This time I used prairie points! No raw edges to worry about.
Here's the back. I kept the button panel as an easy way to remove the cover. The pocket is still there too - a good place for the remote?
Here's my Valentine for you!
I'm going to keep this deal up until the end of February.
Take some time to make a pillow - modern, masculine, with or without hearts!
