- Write your word using chalk that is slightly lighter or darker than the pillow.
- Place a small amount of fabric glue on the waxed paper. With a small artist brush, apply 1'' of glue to the beginning of the first chalk letter. Adhere the cord (one or two strands) to the glue. Continue to brush on glue and attach the cord, inch by inch, until your word is done. Note: For some letters you will have to cut the cord and start again.
- Allow 48 hours to dry.
- Stuff the pillow and slipstitch the opening.
