Sing It Out Loud! Or At Least Write It.

22 Sep

I’ve always been a girl who loves to personalize things. Well – I did it again! I’ve been seeing people personalize their pillows with song lyrics they love – so I set out to find the perfect lyrics for my pillows 🙂 It took a while and a lot of no that’s not it between Brian and I. I wanted him to be as attached to these pillows as I want to be so he had a say in what we chose.

All you need is fabric, a fabric marker (or two), a pillow, a sewing machine (or you can hand stitch with a needle & thread), and some lyrics of course!

Brian and I chose to use the lyrics from Coldplay – Yellow. We are big Coldplay fans and some of our favorite songs as much as we liked them – really didn’t work out for pillow lyrics. So if you do this project you may realize that half of them don’t really work. I like songs with a little bit of  a repetition in it, but enough words to keep you reading.

If you don’t have consistent handwriting or are afraid you want write in a straight line – try not to worry. Mine isn’t either if you look closely enough you’ll realize I write like a third grader – but if you look back up at the picture above it doesn’t look so bad! Plus it gives it a little character 🙂

The rest of this how to will be posted later on. I’m excited to get the pillow sewn so you can all see the finished look of it!

What song would you love on a pillow for your room?

Thanks for stopping by!
