This week's finish was a quick one. With so much pillow talk going around, I figured I'd add my own little throw pillow on the pile. And, with Valentine's Day coming up, I figured it's time to start making a few L.O.V.E. projects!

{I just started with some scraps and cut two white rectangles and two red rectangles}

{cut out my letters by hand}
{I used a yo-yo for the center of the 'e'}

{made the 'o' as a heart using Vanessa of V and Co.'s tute}

{used two strips of white for the 'v' and folded to add a little somethin'}

{tried out my applique machine stitch on the boarder of the 'e}

{and zigzagged the boarder

{cut out a white backing the same size}
{sewed it up, leaving a small opening, with right sides together}
{and stuffed it!}

{sew up the bottom}
{and now it lives on my couch with my LOVE lap quilt}

:) Happy crafting!
