Hearts Appliqué Pillow

Hi friends! I am in full Valentine's Day mode over here at Modern Handcraft and to jump start the projects I have a fun Hearts Appliqué Pillow over on the Sizzix Blog! Modern Handcraft // Hearts Appliqué Pillow for Sizzix: A Tutorial

This pillow combines some of my favorite Sew Timeless fabrics with Robert Kaufman yarn dyed Black Essex Linen, backed in a fun zig-zag fabric from Dear Stella. The Sizzix heart die is Hearts #4 by Stephanie Ackerman from Homegrown & Handmade. I did a small zig-zag appliqué stitch around each heat in a coordinating Aurifil thread.

The little hearts trim makes the envelope backing turn into a little Valentine surprise.
