I began with a Home Depot painters drop cloth.

I wrote the word "love" on my computer in a pretty font and printed it out. 
Next I taped the print-out to card stock and used my craft knife to cut out both layers of paper.

I used spray adhesive to stick the stencil to the fabric. 

Now it is time to stencil.  

stenciling with a LOVE stencil

I used a swirling motion with my stencil brush to fill in the stencil.

I lifted off the stencil and let it dry overnight.

LOVE pillow stuffed

I sewed around the pillow leaving one side open.

I stuffed the pillow with fiber fill, pinned it closed, and hand sewed the last side of the pillow.

tassel on corners of pillow

I sewed tassels on to each of the 4 corners of the pillow.

And very love-ly!
