A former co-worker and his wife have just had a baby girl and because I have such a stash of pink fabric this is a good time to make good use of it.
The quilt might look something like this, or it may look totally different depending on how creative I feel when I work on it.
If you have signed up for Pinterest, you know that you can spend lots of time on the site, sometimes wasting your free time; unless you’re looking for ideas, then you don’t feel so guilty browsing and browsing.
I found this idea for a heart pillow on Pinterest and decided to try it. This is a great idea since there is no sewing involved, so anyone can do this.
Using my old newspaper heart pattern, I cut out my fleece heart.
Then I cut 1 1/2 inch long strips along the edges, making sure the front and back are together at all times while you are cutting the strips.
Once the strips are cut, you begin to tie double knots all around the heart leaving a small section untied to stuff the pillow.
If I decide to make another pillow, I’ll cut the strips 2 inches long, making it easier to tie the knots.
Thanks for stopping by!♥♥♥♥
It does take a little patience to tie all the knots.♥
