Simple Seasonal Pillow

November 28, 2010

Hello!  I finished up another crafty little project yesterday with my Silhouette !  This simple seasonal pillow was created with the use of vinyl cut with my Silhouette and fabric paint.

I created the letters with the Silhouette font tool, then cut them out with the cutter.

I used fabric paint to create the word ‘noel’ with soft green metallic paint.  I use the Tulip and Scribbles Dimensional fabric paints found at Michaels (or other craft stores).

Then I stitched up a quick pillow cover with the linen fabric. Easy!  You can use this same technique to create pillows with your child’s name, the date you were married, any sentimental word! 

Have you entered the Silhouette giveaway?  There’s still time until the end of today!  I’m announcing the winner first thing tomorrow, but if you’re not the lucky winner, remember Silhouette is having their super Cyber Monday sale tomorrow only!
