Hey! Valentine’s Day is in a week, so I thought I’d share a little craft I threw together for Valentine’s Day last year.
It’s actually the first pillow I’ve ever made and boy, was it easier than I thought! I didn’t do anything tricky, and I got to use my scrap fabric that I keep around for this sort of thing. I just cut out some simple bird and leaf shapes and sewed them on by hand.
My favorite part about this little pillow is the pocket in the front. I know it’s a little cheesy, but the purpose of the pocket is to act as a little delivery service for random love notes. I’ll admit that this is something we’re not very good at in our marriage, but the Love Bird pillow has been on our bed for a year now and we’ve written way more notes to each other than we ever have before.
You’ll notice that the pillow is a little lumpy. That’s because instead of stuffing it or covering up another pillow, I put a zipper on one side of the cover and I use it to store two extra blankets (they’re cuddly but not very attractive).
Happy Valentine’s Day!
