I hope you are enjoying your week so far!
This is not a new project, but I have received several emails and comments asking me where did I buy the stenciled pillow in my craft room or if I had made myself, if I could share a tutorial.
I did made this pillow last year after I finished setting up my craft room.
The wicker chair was sitting empty and I decided to add a little "happiness" to it.
It was a very simple project and completely free to me since I had all the necessary materials to make it.
The only thing I was missing was white fabric.
I looked through my stash and could not find a piece big enough to make it.
Sooo, I got creative and I used a plane white bed pillow cover I had in my linen closet, which I cut to size, 16x16. :)
Yes, it is an illness! LOL
I already had the Martha Stewart stencils that I had purchased months before at Michaels for another project.
I chose the round stencil on the left upper corner of the above picture for my design, but instead of the bird, I personalized it by adding the letter M.
I used Americana "tomato red" craft paint and a stencil brush for this project.
Make sure you add a piece of cardboard in between your fabric pieces so it does not bleeds though while you are stenciling it.
Very easy to make.
I did sew mine, but you can also use hem tape.
And that's it! Very simple!
I love this little area of my craft room and I use it quite a bit.
The chair sits next to a small round table with some little red accessories.
And a picture of my mom to keep me company.
BTW, today is her birthday. She turns 71 years old.
Happy Birthday, mom! Isn't she pretty? :)
I miss her sooo much!
Here is a little before and after.
Not very good pictures, but it is so gloomy in Texas.
I hope you decide to make your own monogrammed pillow.
Enjoy your day and see you all soon.
