Scrabble Pillows

My friends and I are huge Scrabble fans! Not only do I love the game, but the aesthetic as well. When I ran across these pillows, I was instantly in love, but was taken aback by the pricing.

With a little bit of research I realized that my fellow Etsian was not the original creator, so I felt a bit more comfortable making them for myself. Considering I had all the supplies on hand, it would only cost me time... I have plenty of that :)

For those of you only interested in the finished product here they are.


I tried them in the bedroom.


They found their new "home" in the living room.
Note: I painted the reverse silhouettes for my dear and
the Home Sweet Home Poster is by Sparkle Power

My honey is thoroughly enjoying the down fill.

For those of you interested in the process. The next section is for you.

Cut 14-1/2" square Canvas


Make your Scrabble letter templates. Cut out and Sew.


I filed my letters. No doubt I will need them again.


I happened to have four down filled pillows. One was too big,
hence the feather situation.


Fill pillows and sew closed. No fancy zipper for these bad boys.


That's all she wrote.

Thanks for reading.

  11. Thanks for stopping by at Stylebaggage! My sister made me a scrabble pillow too. Well, I think it was more for my hubby since the two of them play "words with friends". It's a great gift idea since so many people are on the Scrabble craze right now.
