Cupid’s Arrow pillow tutorial

I’m not quite certain why, but for some reason here in my home certain holidays are decorated for and others just aren’t at all.  Christmas? Yep.  Decorations galore.  Halloween?  A few.  Thanksgiving? A few here too.  Valentine’s Day?  Nothing.  Well, I do have two Valentine-ish quilts hanging around during the month of February.  But that’s about it.  

So for my most recent tutorial for the Therm O Web blog, I thought I would make a pillow to add to my (non-existent) Valentine decor!

Heart and Arrow pillow

This pillow is a fast one to put together, with an envelope backing and some simple raw edge applique using Heat n Bond Lite.

It takes just 1/2 yard of fabric for the pillow itself, and brown and red scraps for the applique.

For the arrows and heart shapes I created a template that you can print out and use.  You can download and print that right from the tutorial itself.

Alright.  Now I have one Valentine pillow.  I think I need a Valentine banner, or a table topper.  Or ???  What do you decorate your home with for Valentine’s Day? 


  1. This is such a cute pillow for Valentine's Day! I like that it's not too red and pink, you know? Thanks for the tutorial, Andy!

  2. This pillow is so cute Andy! I love the arrows on it! Perfect for Valentine's Day. I don't decorate for V-day either so I might need to make this! Thanks for the tutorial!
