I made this the same night I made the Valentine Flags. I already had the iron, burlap, paint & sewing machine out. So this was a quick project. I decided on a rectangle size pillow. I doubled the intended size & cut out the burlap. Then I ironed it in half. I used the fold as one of my sides. So I only ended up having to sew 3 sides. Be sure to leave an opening for the fluff. Then turn it inside out.
Before stuffing, I inserted a paper towel so the paint wouldn't bleed through. I used the Vintage White Acrylic to paint "Love" on the burlap.
When it was mostly dry, I filled it with fluff. I actually used a "snow" tree skirt that I bought for 75 cents after Christmas. Then I used a whip stitch to sew up the hole.
It's the perfect addition to my mismatched sitting room. I'm slowly pulling it all together. I just "love" it!!! I think I'll even keep this out even after Valentines :)
