The approximate finished size is 16” by 20”, but can be scaled up or down as you see fit. It looks especially great with classic embroidered candy heart sayings on the front (we’re thinking “love bug”, “soul mate”, “me & you”, etc.).
This pillow is just the thing for those young, and young at heart — happy sewing!
