DIY Faux Fur Heart Pillow

DIY Faux Fur Heart Pillow @themerrythoughtLast year, my mind was overflowing with Valentine’s Day DIY ideas and this year I was struggling to think of anything! InMod sent us this gorgeous chair and it inspired me to make a faux fur pillow that doubles as a cozy seat cushion. I think the soft, natural pillow is the perfect contrast with the modern lines of the chair.
DIY Faux Fur Heart Pillow @themerrythought What you need:
-Faux Fur
-Sewing Machine
DIY Faux Fur Heart Pillow @themerrythought How to do it:
-Create a heart template. (On paper or scrap fabric.)
-Use template to cut out two pieces of fur – cut 1/2″ extra around the template to leave room for the seam.
-Pin the two pieces of fur together with the outside facing in.
-Sew around the edge of the heart leaving a 1/2″ seam allowance. Leave a few inches open so you can stuff the pillow!
-Snip into the seam allowance every inch or so – this will make it easier to turn it right-side out. *Don’t cut through your seam!
-Turn the heart right-side out.
-Fill with stuffing until desired firmness.
-Use needle and thread to finish off the open edge.
