Preparation

Good Vibes Pillow

  1. Cut two 15” x 15” linen fabric squares (one for the pillow front and one for the back.)
  2. Dilute Watercolor Indigo in a bowl equal parts paint to equal parts water.
  3. Using a large watercolor brush, apply the wash of Indigo over one fabric square of pillow. Let dry completely.
  4. Stencil Wedding Cake “Good Vibes” using a small dauber. While paint is still wet, carefully remove stencil. Let dry.

You Are So Loved Pillow

  2. Stencil “You Are So Loved” Habanero using a small dauber. While paint is still wet, carefully remove stencil. Let dry.

Hello Pillow

  1. Cut two 15” x 15” linen fabric squares, (one for the pillow front and one for the back.)
  2. Using a scrap piece of paper create an 8” circle and then cut it out. Trace the circle pattern onto the pillow center lightly using a pencil.
  3. Paint the circle Green Olive using a large flat brush. Let dry.
  4. When the Green Olive circle is completely dry, stencil a Mermaid Tail “Hello” in the center using a small dauber. While paint is still wet, carefully remove stencil. Let dry.

Clean Up

  1. Wash all stencils, brushes, and tools immediately after use before the paint dries.
  2. Cleaned stencils should be stored on the backer sheet for future use.

Finishing

  1. Allow the painted project to dry 72 hours and then heat set to enhance the project's durability.
  2. After heat setting the fabric squares, lay one stenciled square right side up. Position over it  one plain square. Hold together using straight pins.
  3. Sew around three sides using a 5/8” seam allowance. Clip all four corners on a diagonal.
  4. Reverse the sewn pillow by turning it right side out.
  5. Insert the pillow form and then hand stitch the final side closed.
