PB Number Pillows....

3:12:00 PM


I've wanted those great Number Pillows from Pottery Barn for a long time? .... but didn't want to pay the price.



So... if you were me what would you do?......RIGHT! 

Make your own!

 The very first thing I did was to get a little inspiration from my friend at Tatertots and Jello:

Second, I got out my new "go to" fabric... 
the old Home Depot drop cloth! Great Stuff!


 Next I wanted to find and print out a great font from my computer!
Wrong!
Why is it the printer is broken every time I need it?

Won't let that stop me... I'll draw the numbers!
 Ended up drawing them about ten times until I liked the ones I finally ended up with.


Next I taped the drawing to card stock and cut out the numbers with a craft knife.

 Saved the insides, never know when you might need them!


Next, I opened up the fabric and cut it to the size I needed. 
 .... and then ironed it flat...


Now comes the fun part... using spray adhesive on the back of the stencil I glued the stencil down to the fabric...


 and using a swirling motion I used stencil paint to fill in the numbers. 


 voila!...


 ...pretty good huh?
  Now I let them dry over night.... 



  Time to turn the fabric inside out and sew around, leaving one side open for stuffing.


 Stuffed the pillow form inside, sewed the last side closed...
and put them on the sofa! 

  So glad I didn't pay Pottery Barn for these :) 
I think mine came out great!

  4. I spent $19.99 for the 9' x 12' which is not even the largest... it will make about a zillion pillows! I made #1, #2 and #3 and then about 6 mini "love" pillows, recovered a piano bench and I still used only about 1/3 of it!
    Have fun!

  10. These are awesome! I think I could even do them. I'm not very good at sewing though and always wonder how you sew up the last side? Do you hand stitch it (after the pillow form is in there). Any tips you have would be great! Thanks for the tutorial!

  11. Hi Stephanie,
    Yes, I hand stitched the last side after I put the pillow form inside. Really it is all very easy.... Once you get the hang of it you'll be stenciling and sewing your little heart out like I am... see the Love Pillows on my blog :)
    Thanks for commenting!
