I made this pillow out of 3 old shirts that I found at the thrift shop. I had an old throw pillow that I used the stuffing from. I wanted to personalize it so I measured the old pillow and calculated how big each letter would be. This could also work for a name with 4 or 5 letters if you rearrange them. I think the piping and the red border frame the letters nicely. 

Step 1: Supplies

You will need, sewing machine, matching thread, scissors, measuring tape, either store bought piping or cotton cord to make your own, 3 cotton shirts and fusible bonding.
It's a pity that the three beautiful shirts were gone...but the pillow is beautiful too
