Now I have nothing against the letter Y--it was, in fact, my last initial before I got married--but seeing as I am now an M, let the pillow makeover begin.
I added on 3 flowers (made using this method). I tacked them on with small stitches right over the Y. You can't see it at all.
P.S. The tasseled brocade pillow behind it was also a bargain find. Regularly $79.99 (do people really pay that for pillows?!?) I got it for $16.
I'll post soon about what what I did with the other 3 Y pillows.
