craft: diy outdoor monogram pillows

Monday, February 13, 2012

I love monogram pillows. Even our wedding had monogram pillows made with buttons (one of my favorite projects!) and used on adirondack chairs. But I can't bring myself to buy expensive pillows when I'm programmed to create. Here are two of my favorite blogs showing off some inspiration:

Now, I wish that the steps to making these pillows were also posted here, but my trigger-happy fingers deleted them off of the camera before downloading them to my computer. But check out the sweetest survival for her steps on getting these done. I was lucky and picked up this fabric in the discount bin and put down $1.50 for outdoor fabric, and a few cents for a sheet of felt in the children's craft section.


  1. Turned out so cute! I have been wanting to make that monogram pillow #1 FOREVER! One of these days I really will! Love the striped though!

  2. Wonderful pillows! I always love monograms!! Would love for you to stop by and link up to the Tuesday To Do Party if you haven't already!

  3. Saw your link over at serenity now. Love the pillows. The monograms add so much detail. Love! :)

  4. These are great! I really love the color combo, too! Thanks for sharing them with us!

  5. I LOVE these pillows and am inspired to make some too!
    I am going to be following you on Pinterest and Twitter to keep up with your blog.

  6. I LOVE these! Nautical, casual, and classic at the same time. I think I might have to go looking for outdoor fabric now. :)

  7. LOVE!! I may have to copy this idea on my porch!! I'm pinning right now for future reference!!

  8. These would look beautiful on my deck! Please stop over and share this project at Mix it up Monday:
