2019: Embroidered Monster Reading Pillow

These delightful monsters with cray eyes are just too fun.  You will learn about accurate placement of designs and text content.  You can also learn how to make piping to go around the pillow. The monster pillow designs are provided but this pillow can easily be modified to fit a different theme or age group, simply bring 6-10 design files of your choice.  This pillow design is geared to a 5"x7" (or smaller) size embroidery hoop.

Recommended fabrics: Solids, reads-as-solids, subtle modern small prints, mottled fabrics work best, they allow the embroidery thread and the design to shine.  Choose fabric colors on the light to medium side. Busy prints, multi-colored prints, stripes, plaids and novelty fabrics are not recommended.

Fabric Requirements:

1/2 yard for the front bottom half and pillow back
2/3 yard for the front top half, binding, and piping
