Easy Rag-Time Baby Pillow with Initial POST #1

This is a fun and super easy project you can do in very little time. It can also be a great way to use up a few odds and ends!
To further make this a "green project" stuff your pillow with all the left over scraps you have in your sewing room. Or if you have an old pillow that you don't use or like anymore, make this project to cover it and give it new life! HAVE FUN!

1. Select a fun flannel from your stash for the body (front and back) of your pillow. Also select a contrasting color for the letter you will sew on the front. For the letter you can use craft felt, denim or another fabric of your choice.

2. Cut fabric to the desired size with RIGHT sides OUT and wrong sides together. Be sure to allow for approx 3/4 inch seam allowance.

3. Using a word processing program on your computer, select a font and the letter you want. Increase the size to as size that will fit onto your pillow. Print and cut out the letter.

4. Place the paper cut out onto the fabric you picked for the letter. Make sure you orientate it properly so that when you flip the fabric to the RIGHT side, the letter is correctly positioned.
