Pillow Pals


My grandchildren are still young enough to enjoy spending the night at Nana and Papa's house. The boys have their own more masculine room and my granddaughter has a more feminine, shabby chic room. 

I've been sprucing the boys' room up a bit and thought it would be fun to add some pillows with their names and date of birth, plus it will give them an additional sense of ownership. I started with two ready-made pillows then used individual letters to spell out their names and a sheet of smaller letters 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!  My third grandson is due next month and, unless he's born on the 10th or the 20th, there are still enough numbers and one letter "O" to make a pillow for him too!


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!
