Pleated heart pillow

As the holiday season approaches, we all think about getting presents to the loved ones. But finding the right gift may be sometimes a really challenging task, not to mention the time and money spent. An interesting thing would be to create something on your own, especially if the person you’re thinking about is picky. In that way you can make a long lasting item that will be appreciated. In this case over here a pillow with a red heart in the middle  was crafted with care and love for the special days that are coming next.

So if you decide to do such an item , there are a few thing  you should know before.  Beside of the fabrics needed for your design, you will also need something to fill up the pillow, a sewing machine and of course some skills and additional tools . This inner heart is made out of  multiple strips of fabric. You don’t have to be rocket scientist to fold and cut some pieces of fabric. Ok, so far so good, next comes the tricky part.

Putting all together  and fix them on the pillow case. Sew everything in place and then trim the shapes and  unnecessary edges and you’re done.  This original item should be really  appreciated by your loved one, because it represents you. And, the best of all is yet to come. A gift like this it’s not going to be overlooked by your partner.{found on vanessachristenson}.
