Valentine's Day Liberty Fabric Pillow DIY

February 14, 2014

During one of our many snow days this month, my Daughter and I decided to make a Valentine's Day project using some of the Liberty Fabrics that we just brought in for Fall/Holiday '14 sample making. We made a pillow inspired by Robert Indiana's LOVE sculpture.

FIrst we made a pattern in photoshop replicating the sculture as best we could, but we wanted to keep the "O" vertical rather than tilted. After creating block letters that filled up a 20x20" area we printed them out and taped them together to make a pattern. Then we traced the letters and did our best to adhere them to a piece of linen using small pieces of fusible tape and fabric glue. Next we topstitched the letters using a zig zag stitch. Finally we sewed an envelope style back and stuffed it with a 20x20" insert.snow day 3


If we ever make another version of the same pillow I'll change the font slightly so that there is less negative space inside the O and also make sure the letter block is perfectly square, but it was a fun first try! Hope you had a wonderful Valentine's Day, keep an eye out for these two patterns in our Liberty of London Pajamas!
