It took me a bit of time to think out something as a Valentine present. And let's take a look what came out of it.
Easy pattern, two circles of about 40 cm and a long strip of fabric. Sewn together with a hole left on a side.
A lid, smaller circle and a chunk of soft fabric. The circle has been basted as marked and the rest put inside.
This way I got two buttons. I fastened the thread, tucked the leftovers inside and fastened againg. The thread didn't come out from the center, I took one end and drew it symetrically to the other side.
The buttons have been sewn to the pillow and the threads inside tied together. I put old fabric trimmings inside and sewn the side in hand with an invisible stitching.
The buttons were too thick and quite uncomfortable, anyway, this is a Valentine thing, so I took a red velvet ...
There are two red pieces and two yellow as a stuffing. Machine zigg-zagg embroidery. Then the heart was cut and bordered with a satin stitch (which in fact is just very neat zigg-zagg). The heart's basted to the upper button so it can be easily removed;-)
Happy Valentine's Day to you folks! :-D
