D.I.Y. Illustrated Initial pillow.

I had recently noticed an array of beautiful initial pillows on the internet, i have a crazy amount of fabric hanging around my studio so i thought i would whip something simple and creative to share with you all. Sorry if there might be an overload of pictures, it was quite hard to narrow down the process. if you do not have a sewing machine you can just create this pillow with simple needle and thread and a straight stitch. I hope it was simple and easy to follow.

Foot note. I am aware i was sewing without a machine foot, mine went walkies and I decided to sew without it! yes i am a rebel.

    How lovely is that and I love your strong use of bright colours on it. Very fashionable with all the initial pieces that around at present.

    Aw this is lovely Ella! I want one 🙂 I'm hopefully moving out in the next few months and I definitely think my house mate and I should try our hand at making these. xx

    I love the step by step photos, really cute idea! Haha, i can sympathize with the no foot on sewing machine issue, but like an idiot i wear sunglasses every time i sew without cause i get scared it's going ping up to blind me haha!
    Lots of Love Eve xoxo
