DIY Monogram Pillow

I am working on my seating area in my Master Bedroom, and I really wanted a monogram pillow.  I searched some local stores and couldn't find what I was looking for.  You would never guess it but my mother, grammy, aunt and probably more are amazing seamstresses, why oh why didn't I get passed the love for it?  I have sewn shirts, skirts, blankets, but all the while I have not found that LOVE yet.  I am still praying it will come, sooner rather than later!  My pile of upholstery is growing quickly in the garage!

Needless to say, I talked myself into making this SUPER easy pillow out of some leftover drop cloth, and yes I love it!


The best part is I made the monogram with stuff I had around the house!

I printed this & sign on a piece of paper Font Here

I then cut out the & sign

 and traced around it with a black sharpie marker.  I wasn't worried about the sharpie showing through since I was going to paint it!

Next I used some left over brown paint and painted inside the lines and of course on the lines to cover up the black!

SUPER SUPER easy, I just had to talk myself into making the pillow!

Happy Monday!



  1. Oh, the things you can do with a Sharpie! Would never have thought that was painted on the pillow!

  2. Super cute!! Making things most of the time is better than buying them. You get exactly what you want. Loving the pillow!!
