I’m Blog Hoppin’ today with the Kiwi Lane gals, sharing my Loves Me Valentine Pillow inspired by one of their flower templates. If you’ve hopped from my blog buddy Arin, at A Piece of Life’s Pie your on track, otherwise, head back to the Kiwi Lane Blog.
Loves Me Valentine Pillow
I like to sew. I’m not very good at it though ’cause exact measuring isn’t my thing…Gasp! I sorta just wing it when it comes to sewing projects but even with my limited sewing skills, I knew I could make a pillow.
Kiwi Lane sent me the Paradise templates to create with. Paradise meaning tropical. Like beach and fish tropical. It’s Winter. Since I’m always up for a creative challenge, the flower template caught my eye and inspired me to create something with a Valentine theme.
Typically, I’d create a project out of paper but this time I chose to create something out of fabric. Pink Houndstooth Fabric that is.
Kiwi Lane Paradise Template
To make the flowers, I ironed the fabric on to Heat n Bond adhesive, traced the template with a sewing pencil and cut them out. Even though I’m a novice sewer, I do know Heat and Bond iron on adhesive makes life easier. For real.
Heat Transfer Iron On Vinyl Sentiment
I added heart embellishments in the center of each flower and used my Silhouette to cut out a “loves me” sentiment using white iron on vinyl. First time user of iron on vinyl….pretty cool stuff right there!
I wanna give a BIG thanks to the gals at Kiwi Lane for inviting to be a part of there February Blog Hop.
