Is it too early to decorate for Valentine’s Day?
Too bad, because I did.
along with some festive Pyrex.
And then I decided I needed a pillow.
I could have sewed one, I suppose, BUT I discovered that Dollar Tree has 17” zippered pillow covers (HOW DID I NOT KNOW THIS?) and so I used one of those instead. I also cut out a cupid shape using my Silhouette and some Silhouette stencil vinyl. You could easily do this with an Exacto knife as well.
I applied my stencil to the pillow cover and stuck something inside to prevent bleeding.
Then, I busted out my collection of Silhouette fabric ink
and mixed the pink and magenta to get the perfect shade.
Hint: Mix way more than you think you’ll need. The brush sucks up a ton and you DO NOT want to run out mid-project. The chances of you recreating that shade exactly are slim. Trust me.
I applied the fabric ink with a foam brush and then I peeled off the stencil vinyl and hung it outside to dry.
I stuffed it with an 18” pillow form, for maximum plumpness and voila!
Don’t worry…I bought SIX pillow covers at Dollar Tree. You’ll be seeing plenty more of them ‘round these parts.
All Silhouette fabric ink supplies are 20% off through tomorrow (January 5th) using code “CRAP”. If you don’t have a machine, you can purchase the machine and the fabric ink starter kit for $299 with that same code.
