Guest Post: Monogram Pillow Tutorial from The Winthrop Chronicles

Hi, I'm Sarah from The Winthrop Chronicles so happy to be here on Auntie Lolo's. I am in the process of changing my baby's nursery into a little girls room. So I am happy to share one of my projects for that room with all of you!
This is the first of two pillows I made, it is a monogram pillow. It was pretty easy and quick. 
To make:


first. I bought a pillow from Jo Ann's they were on sale so I stocked up. I got it for about $4. Also, you need some felt (just enough to cover the pillow) and the pom pom ribbon (enough to go around the outside).


second. Cut the back two panels, I like to make my pillows this way because it's super easy and you can just pull off the pillowcase when ever you want. Make sure that there is about 2 to 3 inches of overlay, meaning that they are 2 to 3 inches wider than you actually need, so that when the pillow is in it, you still don't see the pillow.


{this is what the back will look like done, you leave the middle seam un sewn so that you can take out the pillow if you need to}
third. Cut your front panel and your letter. I just free handed the letter and cut it out.


fourth. Using a top stitch, sew the letter on to the front panel.


fifth. To sew the pillow together and sew the pom pom ribbon on, pin the fabric right side to the right side, with the pom pom ribbon on the inside. You can kind of see in the picture below that the pom pom ribbon is inside the pillow and the pillow is inside out. Just sew it then flip it right side out and you're done!


Thanks guys! Stop by my blog some time and say hi! :)
