Our daughter's birthday was coming up when I stumbled across this cute idea for a woven ribbon pillow. But the plain square pillow didn't have enough pizazz, so I decided to try something different. I love it! And so does our 3 year old. I told her that whenever she sees it, she can remember that it means that Mommy loves her. She likes to throw herself on her bed and hug it, then she brings it to me and says, "It means Mommy loves you!" So sweet. :)
Rosmademe did a nice tutorial, but I thought I would walk through the process here, too. I gathered all my supplies, including paper, tape, and scissors to make my heart shape.
All together, I think this project took me about 7 hours. So there's enough time between now and Valentine's Day for you to make one! ;)
If you shop at Hobby Lobby, they have these ribbon remnant bags in the ribbon-sold-by-the-yard section. Each bag has a bunch of ribbons that are each about 2 yards long. One of those bags is plenty for this project.
