Ampersand Pillow DIY!

I'm SO excited to finally get to share this with you! As we've moved, this is one of my favorite handmade items in our home! It's quick and easy to make and you can make one too! Here's how...

1. Make an "&" template either by drawing or printing an "&" onto a piece of card stock. Cut it out to use as a template to cut the felt. Also, choose two pieces of matching felt and layer them for the right size to be used as your background. 

2. Next, lay out your "&" onto your background felt, pin it, and stitch around all of the edges. A contrasting thread will make it stand out more! Lay the background felt onto any pillow (handmade or bought!) and stitch around the edges of it as well. Since it's felt, it won't unravel!

3. Then, put a pillow in your pillow case and stitch up the bottom by hand if necessary.

And there you have it! Your very own ampersand pillow! I hope you like it and try out it. If you do, let us know how it goes!
