Hi! I’m Wendy from Sewing in the Wendy City, and I’m so glad to share my 5th Moda Bake Shop tutorial with you. This is a quick project to decorate for Valentine’s Day and beyond.
1 charm pack of Pezzy Print
3/4 yard of any solid or print in the Pezzy line
14″ pillow form
14″ square of Wonder Under or Steam a Seam
2 18″ squares of batting
small amount of polyester fiberfil
neutral or invisible thread
Choose 9 of your charm squares to be the heart appliques.
Layout your squares into a pleasing design and sew the squares together into a 9-patch.
Layer the 9 patch, batting, and a scrap of fabric for the backing. The scrap will not be visible when the pillow is finished.
Take a small amount of stuffing and put it between the batting and the backing to make the heart puff out a bit.
Then hand stitch the opening closed.
Trim 1/4″ from the edge of the 9 patch.
Cut 2 pieces of the solid fabric to 10″ x 16.” Hem one of the long sides of each piece by folding over twice 1/4″ and stitching.
Pin the back in place and sew from the top 1/4″ from the edge all the way around.
Making and attaching the binding:
Cut two 2.5″ wide strips of the red fabric. Sew end-to-end, press seams open, then press in half lengthwise. Attach binding to the back of the pillow. Fold it over the edge to the front and topstitch near the edge of the binding to secure.
Insert your pillow form, and you’re done!
One cute and funky pillow, just in time to decorate for Valentine’s Day!
