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.

I cut out the decal out in vinyl and peeled out the reverse image so I could stencil it with paint onto my canvas.
Sometimes it’s a little tricky to get vinyl to stick to fabric, so here’s a 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.

I used two shades of green, slightly mixed together and carefully painted over the vinyl.

After it had dried for about 5-7 minutes, I pulled up the vinyl.

I cut out two squares and sewed them into a pillow.

I kind-of love how it turned out.

Do you decorate for St. Patrick’s Day or skip right to Spring or Easter?

  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!
