40 Valentine’s Day Projects to Sew

Are you in the mood for Love? If so, you may like this specially curated collection of 40 things to sew for Valentine’s Day! I’ve included all kinds of fun projects, from Valentine’s Heart Quilts to Valentine’s Day pillows! Enjoy! 

The weather here has been so horribly gray and cloudy this week that I’ve begun to get a bad case of the winter blahs…..  That must be why they put Valentine’s Day smack dab in the middle of Winter, to give us a little respite from all the gray dreariness.

As much as I dislike winter, I look forward to Valentine’s Day every year. It’s the combination of a fresh start, a romantic holiday, and my love of the color pink!

Valentine’s Day Fabric

If you’re looking for cute Valentine’s Day fabric to create your projects with, may I recommend my Mint for You collection with Riley Blake Designs? It features 21 fun and “punny” Valentine’s Day prints, including a panel just the right size to create a quilt or a set of pillows.

You can buy the fabric collection at many online stores (Fat Quarter Shop & Etsy) and in brick-and-mortar fabric stores.

  1. I could just hug your neck for this post! As it is SuperBowl week-end, I have planned all week to have an entire week-end of creative sewing. Your blog this morning was the inspirational start out point (as I was planning Valentine sew gifts for loved ones). Thank you! The creative juices are flowing!

  2. Melissa thank you for including my drop cloth zipper pouch with gingham heart. So fun to be among all these great ideas, you have a really nice round up here. Enjoy your weekend.

  3. Oh my GASH! I can’t contain all the heart cuteness, I wish I had time to do EVERY SINGLE ONE. I can’t believe I’m getting so worked up over hearts ha ha! Seriously though, thanks for the list. They’re all adorable 🙂

  4. Love all these projects. I really like the La La Love You pillow. Looks like it was made from felt, so it will be pretty easy to do.

  5. Love all the ideas!! Lots of inspiration. However, I really liked the envelopes from Flamingo Toes and when I went to the site, the tutorial was not there. It was just the jpeg for the bunting. I printed out the template, but confused on stitching process. Any way I can get the tutorial?
    Thanks so much for putting this list together.
