Making a Candy Heart

Posted by PFAFF®

It’s that time of year again – time for roses, crowded restaurants, and cheesy love songs. [Or, you know, solo Netflix and wine, if that’s your thing.] But while it may be a holiday that caters to the love struck, there’s one part of Valentine’s Day we can all enjoy, taken or single – CANDY.

Candy Heart Pillows - Free Pattern and Embroidery Files

So get in the spirit and whip up a pillow version of the iconic conversation heart candy with our free downloadable pattern! These soft, huggable creations can be made in under an hour with oh-so-satisfying results. [And just like with the real thing, it’s hard to stop after just one.]


The downloadable zip file includes instructions, pattern pieces, and six different .vp3 embroidery files ready to load into your embroidery machine. You could also get creative and use one of the 145 fonts in 6D™ Embroidery Software or TruEmbroidery™ 3 Embroidery Software to come up with your own caption…sweet or sassy? Sugar or spice? It’s up to you!


We’d love to see what you make, so if you share your projects on Instagram, be sure to tag @pfaffsewing and use the hashtag #sewpfaff. Happy sewing!
