Painted Pillow

        Remember how I won a stencil of my choice from Cutting Edge Stencils?  In case you didn’t know, I won a $50 credit for a stencil of my choice from Cutting Edge Stencils curteousy of Chic on a Shoestring Decorating Blog (thank you very much!) so I received my stencil this week.  I choose the Casablanca wall stencil and I am already lovin’ it!  It may be a little while until I will have time to use it some walls I have been eyeing up in my house.  I had been curious to try to paint some pillows so I decided this would be a great opportunity to test it out!  The stencil is just awesome and I had fun with it today.  I had heard you could paint on  pillows, but I needed to see it to believe it.  So here is the proof!  I stenciled this pillow with paint.  All you have to do is the iron the paint to set the paint and this supposedly makes the paint washable.  Isn’t that something?  I am so excited about this as I love paint and the concept of painting pillows is just too much fun.  So, without further ado, have a look at what I created:
 I think it super cute.  I am pleased with how it turned out.  I think this is the favorite pillow I have made thus far.  As for painting pillows… who knew?  A whole new world has just opened up to me!  Paint is just an amzing thing!
Thanks for stopping by!  Hang on tight throughout the storms and hopefully all will work out fine!  Will check back in once the storm has passed…

  21. That is so pretty. Who knew you can paint a pillow. Thanks for sharing at wow.

  22. Hello Miss BeLOve!
    I painted the piece of fabric before I sewed it and stuffed it. I also ironed it before stuffing and sewing as well. Hope that helps! And any old paint will likely do! Spray paint would be fun to try!
