Step 3: cutting out the letters

Either purchase a pillow form or re-cover a throw pillow you already have. Once you have the measurements, then you can calculate the size of the letters. My pillow was 18" x 18", so I subtracted the 2" border leaving it 16" x 16". each rectangle is approximately 5-1/3" x 8". plus 1/4" seam allowance around each rectangle makes each one 5-1/2" x 8-1/4". Cut the letters out of paper for the patterns.
It's a pity that the three beautiful shirts were gone...but the pillow is beautiful too
