Project 2: Scrabble Board Throw Pillow

We are moving right along with a fun project to personalize for any person or occasion: a scrabble board throw pillow. I love this project because you can use the same pattern to create many different pillows with no two exactly the same.

The main board of this pillow is made from felt. Felt is easy to cut and sew, and there’s no need to fold under or finish edges, making the sewing of this project quicker and easier. Be sure to plan out the word order for your pillow front before you start so you know what size of board to make. The more words you add the bigger your pillow will need to be, but the more personalize you can make it! I can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with, so be sure to post photos in the Facebook Group page!

    This was just terrific. I love scrabble and play everyday. I love Ashley and think she is very good. I love her ideas. I will take some of her ideas and add my own since I have Viking embroidery and will adjust to my own specifications. So happy I signed up and Ashley is perfect.!!!!

      I made this cute pillow but after I stenciled the letters with permanent fabric marker and let it dry for 48 hours, traces of the marker came off on my finger when I pressed on it. Is there a way to seal the fabric marker lettering? What happens if I wash the pillow cover? Shrink? Colors run?

        Hi Barbara,

        Thank you for contacting us. Depending on what fabric marker you have the process may be a bit different, the fabric markers I use recommend heat. There are two ways to heat set fabric marker colors. Place in a clothes dryer set on the hottest setting for 30 minutes, or set an iron on cotton.
