Okay, back to today’s DIY Valentine’s Day sewing project. This heart pillow pattern is one of the quickest DIY Valentine’s Day sewing projects you’ll make, but it will be loved all year long by the recipient. I made mine out of a cozy pink sherpa I had on hand from Joann (leftover from this bunny costume I made 5 years ago!).

To stuff it, I repurposed an old throw pillow I had been saving for a project like this so was glad to have it handy. When my girls found it in my sewing room they immediately started asking if it’s for them, so I think I have some Valentine’s Day goodies to buy to add to it before the big day.
