I just ran across this very simple and quick method of reverse applique for a heart shape pillow. Valentines is right around the corner but there is still time to make this quick accent pillow. I can actually visualize this method being used for many holiday projects like St Patrick’s with a green four leaf clover or Easter with a colorful Easter egg.
The Project idea is from V and Co. and there is a complete tutorial on sewing this clever Valentines heart shape pillow. Personally I would make a few changes when pleating the fabric to the center of the project. You could lay out your insert fabric on the ironing board and use the Quick Pleater to pleat a square of fabric and just press as you pleat. Next just top stitch the side to keep the pleats in place, and top stitch across the pleats. Just another way to use the Mini Set of Quick Pleaters.
The Pleating Tool Kit is available in two sizes and both kits includes 3 pleating tools;
Both kits can be used to create knife and box pleats for slipcovers, upholstery, pillows, dust ruffles, quilts, skirts and any other items needing pleats. Each Kit includes the 3 tools and written instructions.
