I’m venturing into making some of my home decor, starting with a beautiful French monogram pillow design by Rouge du Rhin. While the project design shown is in a fabulous red, I am reworking it into softer hues of sky blue and a very light avacado green to compliment an ethereal, peaceful bedroom.

One skein DMC embroidery floss, #471
Size 24 tapestry needle

Finishing materials:
1 yd fabric
1/3 yard fabric
One 20×20 inch pillow form
Straight pins
Hand-sewing needle
Fabric marking pen
Fabric-cutting scissors
