Pattern Description:

I designed my Love You the Most! pillow design a few years ago as a gift for a lovely "tween'. This is a bright, colorful, fun design, and you can make it in so many different ways! The pattern offers instructions to make four versions of the original design so that you can make your own whimsical "sweetheart" pillow for someone special on your list!

This design combines "love you the most" printed or ironed on to fabric, graduated heart appliques and pieced borders to create a delightful pillow accent - perfect in any room in your home.

The comprehensive 25 page pattern includes step-by-step directions for four versions of the Love You the Most! pillow - everything from a classic Valentine to colorful, modern fabric combos. Full size patterns and printables make it very easy to create the appliques, and detailed instructions walk you through the pieced border construction. I've even included a reversed text printable for use with iron-on applications!

Easy to follow instructions are provided for four decorative finishes - fringe, ruffled lace, purchased decorative cord and bias covered cord.

Instructions are also provided for two pillow back options: a one-piece back and an envelope back.

Check out my blog post tutorial (below) and create a wall hanging with this pattern!

I hope you enjoy creating your own versions of Love You the Most! for all of your sweethearts!!
