Scrabble Tile Pillows


When I saw some scrabble tile pillows in a photo on Get In My Home, I knew I just had to try making some! Here’s how:

(1) Find some khaki colored fabric. (Lucky me, my husband had just handed me an old polo shirt in just this color that he no longer wanted!) Cut out two squares for each letter of the word you want to make. I started with 8-inch squares because I just wanted to make some small pillows to put on a shelf, but you could go much larger or smaller.

(2) Go to Fuzzimo, scroll down to where it says “Download Wooden Scrabble Letter Tiles Image,” and download the photo.

(3) Go to PicMonkey and use their tools to crop and enlarge the desired tiles.

(4) Print the tiles, cut out the letters and numbers, and tape them onto a piece of black felt.

(5) Cut out the letters and numbers, pin them on the pillow fronts, and glue or sew them into place. (I machine-sewed mine using the zig-zag stitch.)

(6) Sew each pillow front to a pillow back, right sides together, leaving an opening at the bottom for stuffing.

(7) Trim the seams, turn, and stuff, then pin and handstitch the opening. β™₯

  1. I LOVE these!! I have some lightweight khaki fabric in my stash that would be perfect. Thanks for the inspiration for a great gift idea!!

  2. These are super cute, I love the whole “scrabble” thing. I want to make a magnet board with scrabble pieces for my guests to work on when they visit, just looking for a used game. Great job as always !!

    • What fun!!! If you want a GIANT magnet board, you can buy an oil drip pan in the auto department of a discount store for just a few dollars. I used them in my first-grade classroom for different activities and they work great! πŸ™‚

  3. Ya know, I’m not a huge fan of all those “word” decorations and such that seem to be really popular these days, but these are so cute! I could love these. Also, I can see my husband leaving the “h” and “o” together and leaving the “m” and “e” elsewhere.

  4. Such a great idea! I made a magnetic wall in our kitchen lately and we have scrabble magnets so some pillows would be a lovely addition to our obsession!

    • Oh, thank you! πŸ™‚ To show my appreciation, I’ve posted the lovely button you gave me in my sidebar with a big THANK YOU and a link to your blog! You’re a sweetie! πŸ™‚ Best, Katherine

  6. Cute. I’m curious about the type of felt you used. I made some pillows with felt appliques (I used sheets of crafting felt to make the images). after a few months the felt looked so ugly – what do you think would be the best felt to use that would stand up to a normal amount of wear and tear?
