I have the cutest little pillow tutorial to share with you today! I dreamed up this pillow after hearing a song that I love by the Pixies, called “La La Love You.” I thought those words would be so cute on a little accent pillow for Valentine’s Day, so I got to work and came up with this…
And I la la love it! Would you love one for your couch? Or even your daughter’s bed? Here’s how to do it!
2 Pieces of felt cut into an 18″x11″ rectangle (I used bright pink)
1. Using your sewing machine, sew along each edge of the two cut pieces of felt, using a 1/4″ seam allowance, and leaving small hole a few inches wide. Make sure to finish off both ends. Make a small diagonal cut on each corner, making sure not to cut the stitching.
2. Flip pillow cover inside out, and push the corners out with the eraser end of a pencil. Stuff pillow with batting, and hand sew the pillow closed.
3. Print the free template found HERE, and cut out the letters with scissors. Pin the letters onto a piece of white felt, and cut trim around the printed pattern. Remove the pins, so that you are left with the white felt words “la la <3 you.”
4. Use fabric glue or a glue gun to glue the white letters centered onto your pillow. I used a glue gun because I couldn’t find my fabric glue, and it worked fine, as long as I didn’t use too much hot glue.
Isn’t it cute? It’s the perfect little touch of pink to add to your Valentine’s decor. I hope you try your hand at making one! You’ll la la love it! Sorry, couldn’t resist…
