Cut out a heart pattern. Pin on two layers of fabric then use scissors to loosely cut around design leaving about a 3” border past pattern edge. Remove pattern. Repeat step for desired number of pillows.
Place shelf paper shiny-side-up over letter pattern. Use felt pen to trace around each letter, then cut out.
To create stencil, trace a smaller heart in center of cardstock then carefully cut out, leaving paper outside of heart intact.
Place trash bag on work surface. Place one fabric heart for each pillow (the one that will serve as the top of the pillow) on plastic. Peel off paper backing from each letter then press on each pillow. Press around edges to prevent paint seepage. Start spray on a paper towel to get feel for spraying. Spray in sections, with different colors of spray. Let dry then spray on a second coat for more intense color if desired. Let dry.
Place heart stencil over dry paint in desired spot(s). Add a few paper towels around edges to prevent overspray. Spray desired color into stencil then remove. Repeat with remaining pillows. Let dry then remove letters.
Layer painted heart over another fabric heart, wrong sides together. Place large heart pattern centered over fabric, then trace around with chalk.
Thread needle with three strands of embroidery floss doubled and knot ends to create a 6-strand thread. Use a basic basting stitch along chalk line around pillow leaving about a 5” section open. Use this opening to fill with polyfil then stitch closed. Repeat with remaining pillows.
Use wavy scissors to cut excess fabric from pillow about ½ from stitching line.
