Simple Seasonal Pillow

Sunday, November 28th, 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!
