Knock-off Number Pillows

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!


Why is it the printer is broken every time I need it?

I won't let that stop me... I'll draw the numbers!

I ended up drawing them about ten times until I was happy.

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!

Now it was time to open up the fabric and cut it to the size I needed, then iron it flat. 

Next 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. 


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.

 I 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!
