    I am posting pictures of a Monopoly pillow case that I made. Took a while to scout out all the fabrics that I needed. I used a clear plastic template that I could see through, so I could position each cut out piece exactly how I wanted the fabric to show. Couldn't find any fabrics with hotels and motels, so I digitized the pictures and embroidered them on my Viking SE LE machine. I bought the round metal badges from ebay that someone was selling.

    This is the full pillow case

    This shows a close up of the hotels/motels and the metal badges I purchased
