Love Pillow

Designed by Pattie Wilkinson
Happy Valentine's Day everyone!
I hope you get lots of chocolate, kisses, and lots of love today.

Here's a 'lovely' idea for the day.  When I designed this pillow, I thought the contrast of the burlap with the glitz would be nice.   Fun textures enhance its appeal with the felt letters and jewels you add onto the stylish burlap fabric using Aleene’s® adhesives. It’s an accent piece you’ll love to have in any room in your home not just for Valentine's Day, but EVERY day.
