Monogram Throw Pillow

Things are moving right along in my sewing/guest room with the color scheme change. I've started to make throw pillows to match the new colors. Here is the first pillow I made with a few differnt fabric scraps and ribbon I already had in my stash. This measures about 14.5 inches stuffed, but was 19" square without stuffing. I did not follow a pattern, just made it up as I went along. First, I appliqued the M on the orange flower dot square that had fusible fleece ironed on the back. I did the M using the embroidery machine and a Hanna Montana font from 8 paws and a Claw. Then I used some temporary spray adhesive to apply it to the larger square of black polkadot fabric. To hide the edge of the orange square, I sewed on ribbon. Initially I was going to miter the corners and then figured extending the ribbon to the edge was easier. I was concerned about the ribbon moving as I pinned it on, so I held it in placed with spray adhesive and then top stiched on the very edge. I think fabric spray adhesive is one of my favorite supplies in my sewing stash. I stuffed it with filling from some pillows I have retired from service so I technically did not spend anything to make this. Woo Hoo, one pillow down and a bunch more to go! Thanks for stopping by!
