Personalized Pillows

It’s time for another felt project!  After making the Chicka Letters, I wanted to use the same concept to create personalized pillows for some of the dear little ones in our lives.

20150620-namepillows-03In order to center the name on the pillow, I simply folded the pillow in half height and lengthwise and marked it with a pin.  This gave me a guideline to work from.  After placing all of the letters down, I then measured the left and right margins in order to make sure they were of similar length.  A plastic cutting board inside the pillow case allowed for an easier pinning session!
