Monogrammed Pillow Tutorial June 1, 2012
Oh my gosh! Wait ’til you see this! Last week, when I was going to mass produce beautiful custom painted tea towels,
that turned into a craft-disaster, the project went bust and I was left with 13 plain, white cotton (Wall Mart flour sack) tea towels.
Well…drum roll please…tonight I turned two of those $1 towels, plus a vintage monogrammed hand towel into a gorgeous pillow!
It’s a pocket pillow, that anyone can make, with a 4″ overlap. First though, I carefully sewed the piece of hand towel onto the front panel. There’s lots of give in loose cotton weaves, so you have to measure, pin, measure and double check. At least I did. As carpenters say, measure twice, cut once.
Well, I had better get in my jammies and get a good night’s sleep. I hear the hidden
restoration projects treasure’s calling my name! There’s a flea market fund raiser in town tomorrow. Gotta be prepared!
