Step 1. Cut out 2-8×8 inch squares for the pillow and a smaller 3rd square with a scalloped edge. Use the remaining felt to cut your letters.
Step 2. Find the center of your scalloped square and mark it with a pen. This is where your button will go.
Step 3. Using a glue gun, glue your letters onto the scalloped square.
Step 4. On the edges of one of your 8×8 squares, use a glue gun to attach your trim. Glue the two 8×8 squares together leaving one side open for the batting. Put the batting into the pillow and close the last side.
Step 5. Glue the scalloped square on top of your pillow. Add the button and sew thru the pillow so it creates a dimple in the pillow.
Step 6. Tie a ribbon around your button so you have a place to put the rings.
