Early Wedding Present to Myself and Fiance

I saw this idea on Etsy, and though I knew I could make them myself, So I went to Joann Fabrics Picked up some white felt that was on sale, and some Navy Fleece that was on sale. I wanted Soft and plush pillows to lay on. I had two old pillows, that i just recovered, and I bought a smaller pillow form for the "&" Pillow.

Mr. & Mrs. Pillow Set:

Things you will Need to make your own Mr. & Mrs. Pillow Set
• About 1.5 yards of Fabric for pillow base (in my pillows, the navy blue)
• About 6 - 8.5 x 11 Felt sheets (my pillows- white)
• Three pillow forms
• sewing machine/thread
• "Steam a Seam" and Iron
• Letters -Mr. & Mrs.

Notes: First, I Created and printed out my Letters of Choice. I pinned the print outs to my felt, and cut them out. Then I ironed on my letters on to the pillow fabric with "Steam a Seam" From Joann Fabrics, its a thin strip of fusible interfacing that will attach your letters to the pillows with an iron. Then I Sewed the Letters around the edges. Next I sewed it in a square to fit my Pillow form, Stuffed the pillow inside, and finished hand sewing the bottom edge closed.

If you would like to just BUY the pillows.
This is the Etsy Shop I got the idea from! So cute and fun!
