I really love making my own pillows....to the point where some of our loved ones will be receiving them as Christmas gifts this year :) This evening, I decided to make a new pillow for our home. I used drop cloth for fabric and used freezer paper to make my stencil.
I found a picture of a dog using Microsoft Clip Art and printed it out. I traced it out on the paper side of a piece of freezer paper (shiny side down).
Next, I cut it out and ironed it onto one piece of dropcloth.
For a picture tutorial, check out this post on my anniversary pillow.
Next, I painted the dog black and immediately peeled the freezer paper off. I am always so amazed at how crisp and clean the stencil is thanks to the freezer paper.
Once the paint was dry, I sewed the two sides of the pillow together, leaving a small part of one side open to stuff.
Once I stuffed it, I hand stitched the opening up and it was finished!
Bentley really likes it too...
Today, we celebrated the 2nd day of Christmas....Gabe gave me an awesome robe from Kohls.
I gave Gabe a head massager, which feels soooo good!
Can't wait for the third day of Christmas!
