Pillow Pals

My grandchildren enjoy spending the night at Nana and Papa's house - I think it's because we always make pancakes for breakfast.... LOL   The boys have their own room and enjoy seeing their names on the decorative bed pillows.  Now I need to add one for Connor!


The pillows are easy to personalize. I started with two ready-made pillows then used individual letters to spell out their names and a sheet of smaller letters for numbers for the dates. You will also need some fabric glue.

1. Peel off the waxy paper from the back of each letter to reveal the adhesive. 

2. Position the letters on the pillow then press into place. For positioning, it's easier to place the center letter first, then work out to the left then the right.

3. Gently peel the numbers from the small monogram sheet then glue to the pillow.

4. There weren't enough "0"s for the date on the second pillow, so I substituted the letter "O" instead. I think it looks great!  Now I need to add one more pillow for Connor!

JOY embroidered letters are available in a variety of sizes, fonts and colors.  There are also letters that can be dyed any color with fabric dye, markers, paint and sprays - all available at your favorite craft store!  Enjoy!   Y'all come back now.......

Yours truly,
Julie :)
