I married the love of my life almost 10 years ago!
I love this man, life is so much fun and better together. Can't believe we have been married for nearly 8 years, it's amazing how quickly its passed. Yet when I look back, through all we have been through; 3 children, homes, places we've visited... pets we've owned... lol.. It feels like we have always been together.
So with our special date quickly approaching I've been feeling nostalgic and romantic. I went though a box of some of the love letters we wrote to eachother over the years, and felt inspired to create something fun and meaningful for our anniversary.
I had seen tutorial from AlisaBurke blog, about making love notes into pillows! Loved this idea... so here is my version of the Love Note throw pillows. What a beautiful reminder everyday of our love!
Then follow your transfer papers ironing directions. I used a natural colored linen for my love notes and a pretty linen floral for the rest of the pillow. The colors and flowers reminded me of our wedding day!Sew your love note to the front material of your pillow, I like the exposed edges.. they will fray slightly over time. However you could fold your edges in for a crisp look. Then sew your pillow together right sides facing eachother, leave a 4 inch opening on the bottom to turn right side out, stuff your pretty new pillows and handstich the opening closed. I love pillows, my hubby laughs at our throw pillow collection for the bed... but maybe he will enjoy these sweet reminders of All my love, All the time... ;)
