Snuggle up with a good book and Joy® Iron-on Embroidered letters.
You will need:
- Joy® Embroidered Dye-able Letters
- T-shirts (Large to XXL) in prints with coordinating solids
- A Toss Pillow
- Measuring tape
- Steam Iron
- Pressing cloth
- Colored markers
- Sewing machine
To determine the size of fabric you need, first measure the size of your pillow with a fabric tape. My pillow is 16″ x 16″.
Double that and add 5" (length) , plus 1" (width)
My total patterned fabric measured 17" x 37"
Sew a ½" seam at both ends of the fabric.
Measure and cut fabric to make your pillow pocket.
Mine measured 9" x 12".
Sew a ½" seam along the sides and bottom.
Arrange your letter assortment onto the pocket.
Before ironing, color in your letters first with the markers.
Use a pressing cloth to heat set the colors and permanently affix them to the fabric.
Place fabric, pattern side up and fold to the measurements of your pillow, turn over and sew the pocket onto the front, then turn the fabric, pattern/pocket side in
and sew a ½" seam on the sides.
Turn your pillow cover right side out, pushing corners out.
Stuff with your pillow and place a book or two in the pillow pocket!
You can find Joy® Iron-on Letters at your local craft store and online.
