Anthropologie Inspired XOXO PIllow

 Happy Valentines Day!!!

I thought I would share a little DIY project that is perfect for today.

If you read my blog then you know by now how much I LOVE neutrals:).

So it is no surprise that I made this fun Anthropologie Inspired XOXO Pillow in a washed linen

& charcoal felt.

By making your holiday inspired décor neutral you can use it through the year.

This is my own interpretation of these fabulous pillows.

So I began with 2 pieces of fabric.

One piece for the top of my lumbar pillow and 1{extra long} piece for the envelope back.

I chose a washed linen but you can use any fabric, just be sure it isn’t lighter in weight than the linen

{it may shift on you while you sew}.

Next I took my gray felt, I used 2 pieces from the craft store.

Then cut.

I then pinned & sewed just inside the outer edge using a longer stitch (4) to give more character.

I created a little “LOVE” nook under my stairs where I could

smother my boys with hugs & kisses before they head out  each day:).
