I've been admiring a set of His & Her embroidered pillows (shown below) from Curious Doodles for a while. I don't embroider, so I came up with a knock off project using paper backed fusible web and fabric.
This fusible product is simple to work with. You iron the rough side of the fusible web, to the wrong side of your fabric, according to the directions. Allow to cool. Trace letters onto wrong side. Cut out letters, peel off the paper that you ironed on, and then iron onto your pillow case.
The Martha Stewart letters my daughter gave me for Christmas were the perfect size!!!
You can just barely see the letter traced below. I didn't want to make my lines too dark and have them show through!
Once your letters are cut, remove the paper from the back. I forgot a couple times:) I used the point of a small pair of scissors to help separate the paper from the fabric. Then, I could then peel it away! You could also use a seam ripper.
Lay letters out onto your pillow case. Measure and make sure you have a uniform distance between letters, and equal distance from top and bottom of pillow case. Center your letters based on the size of your pillow, not the size of the case!
Be sure to cover your letters with a dampened cloth, before ironing letters in place. I used a piece of white pillow case left over from another project to dampen and put over top. When the fabric is dry it's the right amount of ironing! Covering the letters before ironing also keeps the iron from scorching the pillow case.
The finished result is super sweet. I may machine stitch the edges of the letters later. But they adhered very well!
