I found this awesome tut for these super cute monogrammed felt pillows via craftzine, and have starting making a bunch for Christmas presents.


3rd finished pillow for my cousin Rachel. (and my favorite!!!)







2nd finished pillow for my boyfriends sister Jessie.







1st pillow I made for my sister Lindsey.



(I LOVE this fabric!)




Tut can be found here at jcarolinecreative.c om. http://www.jcarolinecreative.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Store_Code=JC&Screen=FELTPILLOW

A couple tips...
- Make sure to use interfacing on the back of the felt to keep it from stretching and give more stability.
- I found that its better to print the letters, then trace the outline on the back of the paper. Then place the original printed side face down on the back of the felt (the letter will look backwards). Then start to cut.
- Screw using the hobby knife to cut out the letters. I found that good old fabric scissors worked the best.
- Bigger the letters, the better (and easier to sew!)

wow, let me be one of many to tell you GREAT JOB, these pillows look amazing!!!!!!!! Awsome idea and thanks for posting it. I am not a pro with my sewing machine, but I could get that done  Cool
I just have a question, you mentioned making sure to use the interfacing on the back of the felt. But it said in the instructions to put it on the back of the fabric Back of the felt would make more sence though...... Which way did you do it?
