Hey At Home with K readers! I'm Christina, and I blog over at christinasadventures.com . I am a mid-twenties wife and doggy-mom, who teaches children on the Autism Spectrum. I LOVE everything thrifty, and I'm in love with make-over stories!
I'm so excited to kick off Kindra's fun Valentines Day series! :) I am so not typically a "Valentines Day" girl - but I had a lot of fun making this pillow!
It all started when I saw this sweet pillow on Pinterest:
I figured I'd just put my own spin on it! To minimize the sewing, I used a thrifty placemat I got from a local discount store:
I used a seam-ripper to take out the seams on the right and left sides of the place mat:
Then I cut out some fleece hearts (it was a fabric remnant on a great sale) using a piece of piece of
Once I got them all sewn on, I sewed ribbon on between the hearts and did a little stitch in the middle of each heart as well. This was a little difficult, but I used a thick needle and some muscle and it worked :)
Then I stuffed it with some batting and hand-stitched the sides closed. And it's finished! :)
I think it's so cute - and I love that it doesn't have to be all pink and red, but it's still an appropriate decoration for Valentines Day! If you want to see more projects like this - come stop by my blog! It's a fun place to be :) Thanks so much for having me, Kindra!
Thank you so much for guest posting here today, Christina! I just love the idea of using a placemat for the pillow form.

She even has a weekly linky party on Thursdays that are for projects made for $20 or less. Go check out Christina's wonderful blog for inspiration!
