A Valentine treat for your Honey.

Ok, so this is SOOOOO old!! about ten years old to be exact!! I made this pillow as a gift for Valentines day for my hubby (but at that point he was my almost fianc'e) . I was inspired by this fabric that I had found at Walmart in my small college town. I loved the whole "How do I love thee let me count the ways" thing so I went with it and began thinking up all of the ways I loved my man! The fun part about this pillow was that I re-read the list for the first time in ten years the other day and it reminded me of all the little things that I loved and still love about my honey! And for the last couple of days I have re-noticed all of those little things that made me fall in love with him way back then! I know this is so cheesy! But fun!

So I typed up my reasons and printed them on transferable iron on paper. and then Ironed it onto a white piece of square fabric. The pillow is 16X16 inch square and I just used a pillow form for the stuffing.

This such a simple project and would be great if you are a beginner sewer and just looking for a fun little project. All straight lines and really no way to mess up.  And if you don't love the whole pillow idea just type your reasons up, print them out and frae them. That works to and is even easier then the pillow!!
