Make this cute Anthropologie Inspired Heart Pillow for Valentine’s Day or any day! The neutral colors blend with any decor and it’s no sew!

This pillow is so fun and super simple to make. Seriously…if you can cut out hearts and iron, you are golden. This Anthropologie heart collector illow caught my eye right away when I was roaming around the Anthro website. It was love at first sight…until I saw the price. That’s when my mouth sort of fell open.

Cute right? But would you pay $198? Most likely your answer is NO! It looks to be made beautifully, and is linen with a down insert. It also measures 24 x 24 inches, which is huge. It would look amazing on a large chair, or as the center-point on a bed. My version is not as big. It’s 18 x 18 inches, and the total cost was under $15.00.

Anthropologie Inspired Heart Pillow Supplies Needed:

1.) Print your heart templates. I printed mine on cardboard so they were easier to trace. Cut out the sizes you want to use.

2.) Iron your Wonder Under to your piece of fabric. I used a scrap piece of fabric that measured about 15 x 20 inches. Let it cool.

3.) Trace your hearts on the Wonder Under.

4.) Cut them out, and peel off the paper back.

5.) Iron your pillow cover and then randomly place your hearts. When you have it just right, carefully press them onto the pillow cover.

If you look closely at the bottom corner of the Anthro pillow you will see that they stamped a little quote. I had no way of replicating that, so I used  a piece of hand stamped ribbon on two of my hearts. I ironed them on with a piece of fusible tape.

So…what do you think? Clearly it’s not an exact copy. I loved the way the Anthro hearts were frayed around the edges. They were sewn on though before the pillow cover was assembled. My way was so much easier…and you have to admit you can’t beat the price. Until next time…

    Ann, I like your pillow better and it’s easier to make.

  2. Christina says:

    Your Valentine pillow is cuter than Anthro’s. And Anthro’s is cute!

  3. What an adorable pillow. I love it. Well done!

  4. I’d never spend that on the Anthro pillow. I’m not just saying this — I really like yours, better. Theirs is a little to “ragged” for my taste, so I find your much more appealing.

    Ann – I think I actually like your version bette, or maybe its just the cheap side coming out and I cannot imagine paying $200 for a pillow. I love that stamped tape message you added. So cute. Thanks for sharing my friend. xxoo

  14. Sorry to the retailer, but I like your version much better! I certainly would not pay $198 for a pillow, even if it is larger like theirs. I’m of the mind to have things with a finished look and thiers doesn’t do it for me.

    Your version is really cute and has a more finished look to it. I like the way you come across these projects and make them simple and looking very fashionable! Kudos to you Ann!
