Okay, there is no where in my town to get fabric which is a good and terrible thing. A girl needs access to beautiful fabric but on the other hand it helps with the budget. This is a perfect project for using up some of those scraps I know all of you have.
First off I cut a pillow front and back. For the front I used a piece of canvas and then the back has a solid red piece of cotton. I cut mine 12x15.
For the hearts I used scraps and ironed them onto a piece of wonder under. This stuff is great for applique. It does have a bit of a learning curve, at least for me. :)
Flip your scraps over and trace whatever shape you want on the back. Hearts are easy, but you could also do other shapes for different holidays. I may be doing a Spring pillow too. Cut out your hearts. Then peel off the paper backing, lay out on your fabric, and iron in place. Peeling the paper off was more work than I expected. I took my scissors and scored the back and kind of peeled from the middle out. It was impossible to peel from the edges.
