Hi everyone!Here’s a cute hugs and kisses easy felt letter Valentines inspired pillow! My name is Jen & I write a little blog called City Farmhouse. Today I am sharing this fun & easy XOXO felt letter pillow.This is my own interpretation of  fabulous pillows using my favorite washed linen & charcoal felt.(The great thing about this pillow, it can be used all year long:)!

Supplies to make this XOXO pillow:

Two piece of fabric or a pre-made plain lumbar pillow

A printer for the XOXO pattern

Grey felt (Or felt of color of choice)

Light colored crayon or chalk



Sewing machine or needle and thread for hand-stitching

Pillow insert


So I began with 2 pieces of fabric. One piece for the top of my lumbar pillow and 1{extra long} piece for the envelope back.Click HERE for my envelope pillow TUTORIAL.I chose a washed linen but you can use any fabric, just be sure it isn’t lighter in weight than the linen{it may shift on you while you sew}.

Next I took my gray felt and laid it out for tracing, I used 2 pieces from the craft store.

I then pinned & sewed just inside the outer edge using a longer stitch (4) to give more character.
