DIY Monogram Pillow

Women like pillows. Men hate them! That`s the fact!
I think my boys believe something is wrong with me and that`s why they can`t peacefully enjoy on their favorite sofa or chair... I don`t even need to tell you how much they get irritated when I try to fluff my pillows several times a day...
Maybe it sounds silly to men, but pillows are just like jewelry on a perfect evening combination...  Without them, sofa or armchair looks so unfinished and empty.

To create a monogram pillow you`ll need:
  1. Printed monogram
  2. Sharpie Marker Textile
  3. Plastic folder
  4. Pillowcase
  5. Ruler
  6. Adhesive tape
  7. Iron
Tutorial:

Put printed monogram in plastic folder, to prevent sharpie to penetrates on the back of the pillowcase. First monogram I wanted to create is my blog`s monogram.
Measure the size of monogram and pillowcase, to set monogram in a central position.
Tape the monogram inside of pillowcase to prevent it from moving while you`re working.
Tape the pillowcase on to the working surface to prevent it from moving around.
Copy your monogram with sharpie.
Color the monogram with your sharpie.
After I finished this part, it looked a little to plane, so I added circle around the monogram.
Then I added two diagonal lines.
For another one, I decided to use Greek key decorative border. 
And first letter of our family name.
After everything was drawn, I made my border a little thicker for better balance with letter.
Only thing left to do, is to fix your design with iron for a couple minutes and it`s good to go in your washing machine (so I heard).
I think it turned out pretty good, or should I say totally amazing!! Even my boys likes them!

  4. Ja sad gledam i stvarno ne mogu vjerovati da je to rukom rađeno!!! Toliko je uredno i precizno da je to fascinantno! Ja tako što ne bi uspjela reproducirati na papiru! :) Prekrasni su jastuci i savršeno su se uklopili! Potpisujem i tvrdnju da ih žene obožavaju, a muški...muški nas samo izluđuju sa svojim micanjem i premještanjem! ;) POLUDIM što ih konstantno moram vraćat na mjesto! :) Nikada neće naučiti!

    1. Upravo tako. Ako samo na kratko odem, jastuci završe na podu ili ko zna gde... Hvala na lepom komentaru, moram da ti priznam, pomalo sam i sama zatečena kako sam ih lepo uradila. Momenat inspiracije.... Uskoro stiže druga tura, mislim da će ti se još više dopasti. :)
