Keep It Real Pillow Case


The KBS Birthday party continues with another fabulous gift idea from Miss Nichol! And having just ventured into the art of stenciling on fabric, I was fascinated to see Nichol’s way of doing things. Let’s check it out:


[ Designs | Something To Say ]


Perfect for the teenager in your house, right? I think it’s awesome! And I love the fabric she chose for it as well.

Here’s what Nichol has to say on making this lovely item:

I love the look of painted text on throw pillows and I absolutely adore the handwriting in Kerri’s Something To Say Kit (it’s used in many of her other recent kits as well) and thought a phrase from this kit would look awesome stenciled on a throw pillow. I’ve made several new things for my daughter’s bedroom and throw pillows will complete the ensemble. Her room is aqua + black + white so I went with a black and white theme for this throw pillow using a solid fabric for the front where I stenciled the text and a fun text print fabric on the back. I sewed my own pillow cover but this technique would work just as well with a pre-made pillow cover as long as it can be removed from the pillow and place a piece of cardboard inside while painting so that the paint doesn’t seep through!

Just love it Nichol!

Don’t forget, it’s a party all week long here, so be sure to keep tuning in each day!

    Great idea for a project! One of the things I love about digital files is that you can make them whatever size works for what you want to do with it! This sentiment is definitely perfectly sized for this pillow and are wise words, especially for teens.
    Thanks so much for sharing! It’s so fun seeing these gift ideas from the team!

    I also use cardboard inside to prevent bleeding through (nice to know someone else does it). But you can also use plain old indoor/outdoor spray paint which works just as good.

    Love this pillow! Two questions for Nicole or Kerri though:
    What kind of material did Nicole use for the stencil, and what type of paint? Thanks for the inspiration!

    What kind of material did you use for the black stencil? Ink, Paint or what? Great idea to do with my grandkids.
