"Follow your heart and happiness will follow"
I received this beautiful Heart Mini by Jen Osborn from the messy nest when I participated in the last Schnitzel & Boo Mini Swap on Instagram.
She used all sorts of lines from my favorite fabric designer, Denyse Schmidt. I loved the linen background so much.
I had it on my design wall for a few months, but it was nagging me that she had made a heart pillow version for herself and I couldn't get it out of my head to make it into a pillow cover.
I simply unpicked the binding. Cut some backing with some Denyse Schmidt fabric I had in my stash. Added a hidden zipper. And added the binding back on. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to get the same look of her original binding. As many people know, machine binding is my kryptonite.
The one thing I love the most is that I can still see her backing and label inside when I take the pillow form out!
