I have always loved conversation hearts. Something about conversation and flirting with candy. Darn near irresistible. Sadly, I can’t eat them because they contain gelatin. So, a couple of years ago I decided to make conversation hearts out of fabric but with a nerdy engineering twist. I searched the interwebs for a how-to and found this tutorial by the lovely Jessica Peck: Valentine Candy Heart Pillows Tutorial.
I use a blind hem stitch and invisible thread to sew on the letters. You can get two pillows from 1/2 yard of fleece. So much fun from so little fabric.
I am adding to the collection this Valentine’s Day. Stay tuned!
