Home is Where the Heart Is

I couldn't let Valentine's Day come and go without making at least one little heart pillow. 
I used my Cricut to cut out the heart shape.  I traced it onto what has become my favorite shabby fabric.  Before sewing it up, I hand-stamped the little Paris in the middle.
Then I stitched it up and added the stuffing.  The button was a bit of an after-thought.  It has some French script stamped on it too so I added that under the Paris wording.
Finish up with some red tea-stained seam binding and this baby is ready to be hung anywhere in the house.

And here's how I'm thinking about surprising my husband on Valentine's Day.  Saw this idea on Pinterest:
I think he'll be pleasantly surprised!
