Monogrammed Beach Chair

I know what you're thinking...Monogrammed Beach Chair...say what?!?!  So let me explain...when I pulled my beach chair out I realized it had seen better days.  After a quick search online, I saw a website sold beach chairs (for $44) and you could get the pillow part monogrammed with your initial for $7.  Of course, they were sold out of EVERY color!!

So, I decided to take matters into my own hands.  After a quick trip to Target, I picked up this beach chair on sale for $30.  Naturally, I got green (my favorite color)...and of course I chose to monogram my initial in navy blue (my favorite color combo navy and green).

I had to use my seam ripper to open the pillow case up flat to fit in my embroidery hoop.  Then I just set it up to embroider a Big 'W'.

Once the embroidery was done, I just sewed the pillow case back up and inserted the pillow back in.

And that is how you save $21 and get a personalized beach chair....

And as you are reading this post, I am most likely sitting on a sunny beach, drinking a Straw-ber-rita, reading a good book and spending some time with some good friends. I hope you are having a fabulous Friday!
