Ever since I saw this cute stamp Amy put on her crate, I’ve wanted to try designing one myself.  I finally got around to doing it for St. Patrick’s Day. I didn’t want it to look clean and crisp, so I added some “grunge” to the design to roughen it up a bit.

HERE’S WHAT YOU DO

Before you begin, hop on over and check out this envelope pillow tutorial (You can also purchase a premade pillow cover). Cut out a vinyl stencil that will fit your pillow cover.  Peel out the reverse image so you are left with a stencil to paint. Apply the vinyl to the fabric.  It might take some time to get it to stick. *Quick Tip* Use a piece of transfer tape that has already been used or lightly rub a t-shirt on a new piece to remove some of the tackiness. This will help make transferring the vinyl to the fabric a bit easier

Slightly mix two shades of green together.  Then, start painting over the vinyl.  Use an up and down motion instead of brushing back and forth.  This will help minimize paint bleeds.

After it has dried for about 5-7 minutes, carefully pull up the vinyl.

Cut out the fabric and sew it into a pillow.

I kind-of love how it turned out.   What do you think?

  1. I absolutely love this pillow! What kind of cutter do you use? I seriously need to upgrade from my basic Cricut, but just don't know which one to choose. Pinning this one!
