Valentines Day XO Hugs & Kisses Pillow Covers

Just before Thanksgiving I made pillow covers from ticking fabric.
I added vintage images to the front of these pillows
by printing the images onto creamy white duckcloth fabric.
 
They turned out really cute, you can check them out here.
 
I also made 4 solid pillow covers out of the creamy white duckcloth fabric
 to coordinate with the ticking pillows.
 
Today I decided to turn two of those solid pillow covers into Valentines Day pillows.
 
 
 


Using the same red coduroy fabric that I used on my Valentines wreath,
I cut out a large X and O.
(I cut 8"x10" pieces of coduroy and drew the outline of the X & O freehand)
 

 
 
Next I centered them on top of the pillow covers and pinned them in place
before sewing them on.
I used white thread because I thought it would add a little character.
 
 

 
The O pillow cover can actually be used beyond Valentines day
 if you are an Ohio Buckeyes fan.
 
My husband is a Penn State Alumni and he doesn't like it.
 
Oh well, they still make a cute pair for Valentines Day.
 
 
 
 
I'm not keeping these for myself - they are going in my Etsy shop.
 
 
 
 
I hope your Valentines decorating is going well.
 We're only a couple weeks away.
Do you have anything special planned yet for your kids or your sweetie?
 
 
 
'til next time,
