I have mentioned before that I have a thing for anything monogrammed. If I had a machine that would monogram all my clothing would look like the Laverne's on Laverne and Shirley the t.v. show.
But I don't, so for now I'll just settle for my monogrammed pillow, which is so easy.
Step 1: Lay the pillow flat and measure to find the halfway point of your pillow. Make a light mark with your pencil. I used a paper letter T that I had in my house, but there are many stencils available for free like here. Lay the stencil flat in the middle of the pillow. Make sure the letter is lined up with the mark you made. Trace the stencil lightly with a pencil.
Step 2: Before you start painting you will need to place something in the middle of the pillow, so the paint does not seep through. I used an old coloring book that has a waxy cover. You could use aluminum foil or plastic wrap. Then, start down at the bottom of the letter beginning with the edge and apply paint.
Step 4: Make sure to fill in your letter completely and apply a few coats. This was after the first coat. I waited 20 minutes to apply the next coat.
My finished pillow looks great and I love it.
Have you bought or made anything recently monogrammed?
Have a great weekend.
