Letter Pillows

Christmas 2010, when my husband and I were still dating, I made him these letter pillows:

Green is is favorite color and I thought it was a cute way for him to remember me each night before he fell asleep. He loved them (and still does)

They were super easy to make. If you have never sewed anything in your life, this is probably a good starting point for you. I would say that this pattern, by far, is the easiest pattern I have ever used. Its simplicity 4928.

I used fleece to make these, but you could really use any material you want. Its a very versatile pattern. All you do is cut out 2 of each letter pattern provided out of whatever fabric you want. Then you sew the two sides together (right sides together) almost all the way. Turn it inside out and stuff it with poly-fil. Then hand sew the rest shut. Easy. This would probably be a great pattern to teach your children how to sew with and a great way to use remnants. You only need about 1/3 to 1/2 of a yard for each letter.
