Green Monogrammed Pillow with Tassel & Lace Medallion

This stylish monogrammed pillow, adorned with lace medallion and tassel, was contributed by Bobbie Berry. Bobbie, thank you!!!

Bobbie embroidered the pillow front with Cherry Punch initials, embroidered the lace medallion separately on water soluble backing, then attached it to the middle of the pillow along with the tassel, and added outside trimming. Here's a photo of ready pillow, and below you'll find Bobbie's instruction, and some more pictures of other beautiful pillows:
