Valentine’s Craft

Adorable XOXO pillow sewing tutorial - perfect for Valentine's day!

With three kids running around, I am always looking for quick and easy sewing projects. Ideas that can satisfy my creative drive, but don’t take forever to create. After all, I want to feel productive in the 30 minutes of free time I have each day!

Sharing ideas that everyone can create is my passion, whether you have had years of experience on the sewing machine or not. Something you can whip up in very little time, that still yields adorable results!

    SO cute, and could be done in “boy: colors” too. Why should they be left out of the hugs and kisses? Great idea and cool technique. Thanks for sharing this.

    I am realizing now, I should have put this in the post in case anyone was curious – but the dolls in the first few photos are actually an adorable pattern from Abby of Sew Much Ado and can be found here:
