A Valentines Cushion!

I love seasonal sewing.  It adds a bit of change to the regular decor of a home. You know what they say about change!  That it is as good as a holiday!  So I decided to do a bit of Valentine sewing.  

I bought "Sealed with a Kiss" fabric last year and never got around to making anything with it.  Just a charm pack and some cute background fabric.  I made some simple hearts.

Sashed them with cute background and added a border.  

Auditioning the binding fabric was so difficult.  I wanted to go with traditional pinks or reds but this blue kept calling to me.  I sent my friend a picture of the cushion top and a few binding fabrics and she also chose the blue.  I am glad I went with it.  It looks so fresh and sweet.  

I hope you are getting a chance to sew on some fun holiday projects.  Have a great week!



  1. so sweet! Love it sitting on your bench. well done!

  2. Your bench looks like the perfect place to display those cute seasonal projects. I like the blue binding. I wouldn't have thought of using that color, but it works.

  3. I agree - the blue looks great with your fabrics.
