For the heart shaped pillows, fold a 12 inch by 12 inch piece of cardstock in half, draw half of a heart with the top valley and bottom point on the fold. Cut out the heart and unfold the cardstock to make the template for the pillows.

Iron a red bandanna and place the heart template on one corner of the bandanna; cut out. Turn the bandanna to the opposite corner, place the heart template and cut out another heart. I got two pieces of pillow from one bandanna and I cut my pieces a little larger than the template for the seam allowance.

Iron the word “perfect” or “love” on the front of the pillow according to the iron-on package instructions. Place the right sides of the fabric together and either hand sew, machine sew or glue the pieces of the pillow together (just like with the first pillow).

Cut small slits in the edge of the pillow being very careful not to cut through your stitches. This allows the fabric to “bend” a little so that the rounded portions lay better once the pillow is turned right side out.

Also, make sure to leave the opening for stuffing the pillow on one of the long sides and not at the bottom point, one of the rounded top parts or the valley at the top of the heart. Otherwise when you stitch the pillow closed it will be more difficult and may make your heart look a little mis-shaped.

Repeat cutting, ironing and sewing/gluing for the second pillow.

    So cute Vicki! Facebook is notorious for not notifying pages when I tag them, so I thought I would stop by and let you know I featured this on my FB page yesterday.

    P.S. is your blog post supposed to have side bars? They are all missing for me. They are on the homepage, but not on this post. I can send you a screenshot if you need it.

      Hi Amanda,
      My blog has hiccups now and then. Not sure what causes it and it varies on different devices. Glad you have my back though. :)
      I will go over and give your feature a little ♥.



  1. […] Bandannas are the perfect bite-sized craft material – not too big and they come in many different colors and styles. I love the look of the traditional bandanna patterns when they are made into unexpected crafts, like these small heart-shaped throw pillows from The Creative Goddess. This version is a no-sew craft, but you could easily use your sewing machine to whip up several pillows, too. Find out instructions for making them over at her blog: [how to make heart bandanna pillows] […]
