How to make your Valentine’s Day heart cushion
Step 1: Fold the fabric the first fabric RSD
Take your first piece of fabric and fold it in half with the right side down (RSD).
Step 2: Draw a semi-heart shape on the fabric
On the folded fabric, draw a semi-heart shape using a fabric marker or pencil, then pin it in place.
Step 3: Draw a line 3″ down
Draw a straight line 3 inches down from the top edge of the folded fabric.
Step 4: Draw a semi-heart on the main fabric
On the main piece of fabric (unfolded), draw another semi-heart shape. Mark 4 inches from each end.
Step 5: Cut around to get a heart shape
Using scissors, carefully cut around the semi-heart shape on the folded fabric to create a heart shape.
Step 6: Fold the second fabric
Take your second piece of fabric and fold it in half.
Step 7: Cut around to get another heart shape
Cut around the folded fabric to create another heart shape, but this time cut the heart in half along the fold.
Step 8: Sew 3″ into each half
Sew 3 inches into each half of the heart shape, leaving a gap in the middle for stuffing later.
Step 9: Assemble the fabrics
Place one of the heart-shaped fabrics with the right side up (RSU) and the other heart-shaped fabric with the right side down (RSD) on top. Sew around the edges of the heart-shaped fabrics, making sure to leave an opening for stuffing. Turn the fabric item inside out so the right side is facing out.
Step 10: Sew around the heart-shaped fabric and stuff
Sew around the heart-shaped fabric again to secure the edges. Turn inside out and fill the inside of the heart with wadding or stuffing. Hand sew the opening to close it, or you can insert a zipper if you prefer. Your heart cushion for Valentine’s Day is ready!
