You will fall in LOVE with these adorable tea-stained vintage heart pillows with lace! They are an easy to sew Valentine project.

Pin It
First you will need to tea-stain your fabrics.  To do so save your extra tea and coffee. Soak fabric and lace in tea or coffee until its the primitive color or stain you like. Then wash and dry your fabric. Press your fabric nice and flat. You can also use Rite Dye tan color to get the same effect. Just follow the directions on the bottle.

Now let's make a heart pattern. Take an 8.5"X11" piece of computer paper and fold the long ends together. Draw a half of a heart as shown.

Cut out your heart pattern. Open pattern and draw two lines to divide heart as shown.
Cut the lines. You now have 3 heart pattern pieces.

Now let's sew the pieces of the heart together.

Place one of the top and middle section of heart pieces  PRETTY SIDES TOGETHER at the center seam. Pin. Stitch using the pressure foot as your guide.

Do the same to the bottom and middle section.

Tea-stain your fabric to make your hearts look more vintage. Press seams nice and flat. Now you have a full heart with three different prints of fabric. Do the same for the back of the heart with the other three pieces/sections of the heart.

Pin lace to seam where the top and middle section met. Stitch in place.
