Check out these pillows I made! (Ignore my paint job- I have to do some touch up - before school starts!)

I used my cricut to cut out my letters and then appliqued them onto the fabric. Then I turned those squares into pillows. I'm not going to give you a step by step tutorial, but I do have few tips.
1. If you are like me, and you've seen applique and kinda know how to do it (but not really), you can look it up on You Tube! Search applique and watch a few videos, this will give you exactly what you need - even if you're not an expert!
3. Stabilizer! I can always remember my mom sewing with adding tape under her projects - I always wondered why? Now I know! If you put paper under the project it will hold the stitches so they don't pull your fabric, and it will look so much better. Not to mention it's also easier to sew it. The needle will poke so many holes in the paper you'll be able to pull the paper away afterward. (For some reason I felt the need to keep with my color theme and use a sheet of green paper)
4. Have fun! I love the way these came out and I hope my kids will too!
Here is a sneak peek of my room so far. As you can see I don't even have anything on my bulletin boards and nothing on my shelves... but I still have a few weeks! Thank goodness!
