DIY monogrammed pillow sham

Sorry for the silence over here this week, we were having one last summer hoorah at the beach!  We had a great time and are now officially ready for fall.  It is definitely my favorite season.  I was so excited to see mums in the grocery store and feel a little nip in the air this morning.  

I'm slowly trying to finish up my daughter's room.  For some reason it just wasn't coming together like I had envisioned.  I knew I wanted to do some sort of monogrammed pillow sham in there.  Maybe it's the southerner in me, but I just love a good monogram.  I searched around online, but all the ones I came across were a little too pricey for my budget.  I decided to make a similar one for a fraction of the cost.  Here was my inspiration:

I loved the scalloped edge and large monogram, but not the $120+ price tag.  For my version, I bought a set of two white ruffled shams from Overstock.  Then I purchased some orange trim from Hobby Lobby for around three dollars.  I ended up needing two rolls to go all the way around the edge.  I had a friend do the monogram for me for only $6, which is such a great deal!  I used my sewing machine to sew the trim around the outside edge of the ruffle.  If you don't sew you could definitely use something like Fabri-Tac.  I ended up spending around $30 total and I still have another sham leftover.

I also made a quick pillow cover for the euro pillow behind the sham.  The fabric was a clearance find from Hobby Lobby and I just couldn't resist adding a little pom pom trim.  I think this room is almost officially done.  I just have one more little project to finish and I'm calling it done!
