DIY Extra Large Monogram Shams

I love a good monogram so when I was thinking up ideas for holiday diy gift projects I decided to go big!

Here is what you’ll need for this project:

SUPPLIES:
FELT
PAINTERS TAPE
RULER
SHARPIE -SHADE SIMILAR TO FELT COLOR CHOICE
FABRIC GLUE
PILLOW CASE – Actually found these at the dollar tree!

STEP 1: In order to make things less complicated we decided to go with a block font for our monogram. I kept all of the wrinkles in order for the lines to help me figure out sizing. We decided to go with a height of 10″ that fell in between the fold lines.

STEP 2: Now for the letters there isn’t an exact science. Just remember that you need to do the letters backwards so that when you cut them out you don’t see the sharpie marks. For the measurements it’s easiest if you use the width of your ruler for the width of the letters and once you figure out what height you would like to us (We picked 10″) it just takes a little eye balling to figure out how to make your letter, which is why using painters tape is helpful in getting a realistic image of the finished letter.

STEP 3: Once you have all your measurements done cut out your letters. Felt has pros and cons. It’s great because you have no frayed seams and it has a nice weight to it. It’s main con is that it can be difficult to cut. Make sure you have a sharp pair of scissors to get a clean cut.

STEP 4: Lay out your finished letters to make sure they fall within the height you wanted and figure out spacing. The nice part about felt is that it can be pulled a bit if you cut a letter a little too short.

STEP 5: Use fabric glue to glue letters to place.

STEP 6: Iron down letters to help spread out the glue a bit and set it.
