Monogram Pillows

For Christmas last year, my sister-in-law made us this gorgeous, scallopy, bedspread. I'm not really one to have 20 decorative pillows on my bed, but I wanted just a few simple ones that wouldn't distract/compete with the bedspread. So I found some pastel fabrics (ok the middle one ended up being more neon, but whatevs) and made one typical square pillow with aqua binding + 2 pale pink with our first initials on them.

Now, there are probably a million better ways of making these since I kinda just improvised and was wayyy too skimpy on the stuffing, but I still like the idea. Basically all I did was trace the letters onto my fabric before sewing and then filled them in with a fabric marker.
