So on Friday when I woke up, I didn't waste any time getting to work on projects that have been piling up since May.
And since we don't have enough pillows on our bed (I say that sarcastically, of course, because Andrew thinks a bed with more than 2 pillows is going overboard) I decided to make a cute monogram pillow for our bed, because heck, I love monograms.
I had some fabric left over from making my pelmet boxes, so I decided to make a box pleat trim with the extra. A lot of folding and a lot of pressing & steaming later, I had trim for my pillow.
I stitched the trim along the bottom and finished the ends by folding the raw side in.
Then, after printing a giant C, tracing it on onto my fabric & cutting it out, I used heat n' bond to adhere the monogram to my pillow.
Because heat n' bond doesn't always stick the strongest to burlap, I did a zig zag stitch around the edge to make sure it stayed! After a lot of stitching & stuffing, I ended up with my new pillow.
I love box pleats! So clean & crisp. And I love how my monogram pillow turned out!
