Heart Pillow Cushion & Tutorial - Prima February PPP

Hi Everyone,

   I am excited to share with you this Heart Pillow Cushion I made for Prima February PPP.  

This is beautiful color palette for this month of love <3 

I am in love with these gorgeous colors palette and I had so much fun playing with them.  I used the Prima Resist Canvas to great little cushions, these could be perfect as a pin cushion, wall decor, gifts, and more. 

Here is a little tutorial on how I put them together.  The Amazing thing about the Resist Canvas is that you can color them any color, add lots of textures, stamps and much more..... the ideas are endless. :)

You will need Prima Resist Canvas, burlap and white paper to create your heart cushion.  

It can be any size.  These little hearts are aprox 4 x4 inches.  I used regular white paper to create a template first. 

I then pin the heart template into the resist canvas to create the front of my heart cushion. 

Then you will have the front of your heart cushion. 

Now let's do the same to create the back of it.  I am using canvas fabric to create my background. 

Here we have the front of the heart and the back. 

You can glue or sew around the edges of the heart.  I glued mine using Fabric Tac Glue.  Add some filling inside your cushion. 

Now the fun part begins:  You can spray or add any time of texture to your heart cushion.  I used Shimmerz Sprays in Aquas and Pinks to alter mine. 

Once you have the color you would like, you can then decorate your heart cushions.  I used this gorgeous new Prima Trim, chipboard embellishments and flowers. 

Hope you enjoyed this simple easy tutorial and it inspires you to create some with the
Prima Resist canvas :) Be sure to play with the PPP this month for a chance to win!
