Make Your Own Shabby Chic Love Pillow

It’s the little things that make a house – home. Details like photos, personal memorabilia, cards, etc ate the ones that bring our individuality to the place we live in and love. Crew member, Tatiana Klimshina is sharing with you an idea on how to make your own mini Love Cushions using Canvas Corp 12×12 burlap and canvas. We offer them in a vast range of colors and sizes; from blank to printed, you can customise at will. We hope that Tatiana’s project will inspire you to take your sewing kit out and give it a go.

‘ I wanted to make something that I can display in the house not just for Valentine’s day. Something that will remind us all how important love is and how cherished it should be. I think my shabby chic cushions are perfect for that.’ – says Tatiana.

Materials used:
12 x 12 Canvas Sheet – Natural Canvas
12 x 12 Burlap Sheet – Red
12×12 Burlap Sheet – Sand
Glimmer Mist – Coffee Shop
Glimmer Mist – Vintage Brass
Natural linen

vintage lace

sewing pins
sewing machine

You can make one or make a series of sweet pillows and this one does not have to go away on February 15th, it is just a wonderful reminder that Love is the Answer.

Layer different colour fabric shapes over one another to create interesting results.

To add detail to your cushions, you can use lace embellishments and chipboards – attach them using hot glue gun.

So never throw away little bits and pieces, collect fabric from vintage dresses or maybe a chest in grandma’s attic and fetch lace from old a long forgotten apron and add them with a bit of Canvas Corp and magic is created.

Happy sewing!
