Love-ly Pillows

8:38:00 PM

I  love pillows!
And what a great Valentine for someone...

I posted about these pillows back in 2011... 
They were a favorite and I'm sharing them again with bigger, brighter pictures. 

LOVE pillow for Valentine's Day

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 it out.
 I used spray adhesive to stick the stencil to the fabric...
And it was time to stencil.  

An oil based pot paint was used to get a shaded effect. 

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

 I lifted off the stencil and let it dry overnight.

 I sewed around the pillow leaving one side open.
I stuffed the pillow with fiber fill, pinned it closed, 
and hand sewed the final side of the pillow.

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

And very love-ly!

While I was at it I made 6 to sell as Valentine gifts!

Wouldn't you just love to get one for Valentine's Day?

All 6 sold on my Etsy Shop!
