For my friend's birthday, I wanted to make her a monogrammed pillow and this site gave me the idea to make the letter out of felt. Couldn't have been easier.
I used my all-time favorite black crocodile felt that I stock up on each time I go to Hobby Lobby, and ironed it to the pillow fabric with that stuff that you iron to fabric. I'm no expert.
I was determined to make sure the top-stitching was equally spaced so I got the dumb idea that I would use baby power and a cake decorating
Grrr... my tassel burst all over the place! I have no idea how it happened, but one by one the beads started to slide off. I had to sew each strand back together. Oh well! I think it turned out really cute, and I think Mrs. F will agree.
(UPDATE: No need to warn my friend that the bottom left tassle was weak. The babysitter called and told her that her 3-year-old daughter decided to eat them. Glass beads. Down the hatch. No joke.)
