Button Lover’s Club: Button Heart Throw Pillow!

Hi everyone, it’s Kimberly! I love thread and buttons, so when we started the Button Lovers’ Monthly Club I was inspired!  I made a quick project to help inspire all of our club members – a Button Heart Throw Pillow! This pillow was a quick and easy project and it makes a great gift!

Not a member of the club yet?

Here are the supplies you need to make this pillow:

Buttons from two of the June Button Lovers’ Monthly Club boxes
1 yard Mochi Linen Unbleached Solid for background and backing
¼ yard Grunge Basics Rose Yardage for binding
 #24 Primitive Gatherings Chenille needle
AuriFloss Bright Pink #2425
FREE Button Lovers’ Heart Template
14” pillow form

Pillow Assembly Instructions:

Step One:  Download our Heart Template and trace the heart on a 18” x 21” rectangle of your background fabric using a Frixion pen.  Using two strands of Aurifloss attach the buttons to the heart.  I used two stitches on each button.

Step Two:  When you are finished adding the buttons trim the block to 12 ½” square.

Step Three:  Cut two 14” x 21” rectangles for the backing. Fold each rectangle in half for a 10.5” x 14” rectangle.  With the folds in the center, overlap the backing pieces 3”.  Place the top and back together and top stitch 1/8” from the edge.  Trim the backing. 

Step Four:  Cut two 2” binding strips and join on the diagonal.  Add the binding and you are done!

I hope you love this beautiful, button-y pillow as much as we do. Happy Sewing!


  1. This is a really nice project, but to make it you need to buy 2 of your button boxes. It would have been nice if you'd had a project that uses the buttons from one box. Are many people subscribing to more than one box?

  2. Hi Karen,

    This project can be easily modified to use buttons from one box. Instead of sewing the buttons on so close together, simply add a bit of space around each button. Thank you for your comment!
