A mix of painting and sewing, I made these throw pillows as a gift for my boyfriend. I stitched the pillows from blue linen and top stitched the heart balloons and hot air balloons made from fabric scraps (cotton sateen, satin, and heavy lace). For the silhouettes, I just used a bit of paint. You can read the tutorial and see more pictures here.
