La La Love You Valentine Pillow

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!

Supplies:
  • 2 Pieces of felt cut into an 18"x11" rectangle (I used bright pink)
  • Small piece of white felt (for the words)
  • Sewing machine
  • Glue gun or fabric glue
  • Batting (to stuff the pillow)
  • Pins
  • Free printable template found HERE
Directions:

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...

 Happy crafting!

  1. Hi Laura, I just love this pillow! It's so bright and happy and of course, my favorite color, pink! I really love that you an "glue" the words on, because honestly, I am not one who really sews - but this is inspiring me to try a pillow! Glad I found it and thanks for the inspiration and directions! ~Cindy, littlemisscelebration.com
