I finally finished my two new pillows for my living room and the first one I started is the one with the same design as my painted rug. I used the same stencil, bought black fabric paint and had left over drop cloth to make the pillow. I bought the pillow forms 50% off at Joann fabrics.
I did the same thing I did when I painted the rug
I used a washable kids thin marker to outline the stencil.
I used this brand for fabric paint and a small brush, I ended up changing my brush to a thicker one.
Then I painted over the lines, let dry, fixed a few areas and let dry over night, this paint is pretty thick, next time I'm going to get the fabric medium and deal with the ironing.
On the other side of the pillow I did this
I cut strips out of two different fabrics I had laying around and made stripes. I love making pillows with different fabric on each side so I can easily flip them over to change the look.
The white pillow behind it was made from left over fabric from my slipcover and i used the vintage lace I picked up the other day that I mention here and a stip ove scrap fabric from my Ikea sheer curtains.
I'm not so great at sewing the fabric tight enough that's why they are so wrinkly. I did get most of the wrinkles out with my portable steamer.
I wanted to keep this side light and simple and on the other side is this
This fabric i picked up for cheap at a consignment store.
Each pillow was under $10, most of the fabric was leftovers and the pillow forms were the most expensive, even at 50% off.
