Embroidery Pillow – Sewing Projects for Kids Series

Share the love!

The fun thing about this pillow is that it is totally customizable.  Depending on the embroidery that will be stitched, or the name length, the pillow can be custom sized around it.

There is no pillow form, so again you can customize your size and learn how to stuff things so they aren’t lumpy!
