Family Love Pillow

Today I am a contributor over at Ginger Snap Crafts!  I love Ginger & her fun blog - she has so many great projects and ideas!  I came up with this fun idea for a Valentine Pillow.  The heart on the front of the pillow has a zipper in it and inside the heart are 5 smaller hearts.

There is one heart for each member of our family.  Everyone has their name on the back of the heart.  Every day from February 1st to the 14th we will choose a heart and write a positive quality or character trait on that person's heart.  On Valentine's Day, everyone will receive their own heart.   I am  hoping it will help us have extra love in our family!

The pillow is actually made from a drop cloth, this is the pillow back:

Check out Ginger's blog for the full pillow tutorial!



  1. Could I please sign up for a "pillow of the month club " membership!! ? I love the drop cloth idea - I use drop cloths for table cloths all the time - I will have to get it out and cut it up now!

  2. This is super cute! I saw it over at Ginger's and commented there, but thought you should get one directly. So cute that I am pinning for later! Thanks for sharing such a cut idea! Yeah, and I want to be a part of the "membership" too!

  3. Amanda, just wanted to thank you so very much for this great tutorial. My 8 & 10 year olds made this with me, we had so much fun we made two more; one for St. Patrick's Day and one for Easter, same concept using fabric and shapes we drew up corresponding to the occasion/Holiday. We love that it has a concealed zipper, so easy to change out each month and wash!
