Spring Pillows

 

Spring Pillows by Every Day is an Occasion

If you follow my Facebook page you may remember me discussing my debacle of which new curtains to buy. What I didn’t share at the time was the reasoning behind getting new curtains…..Well, let’s just say that my almost 2 year old daughter got a hold of a marker and decided that our old curtains would be her canvas (Yes!!! I was secretly sooo happy! We really needed new ones). I washed them and dried them….Yep they shrunk!!! You guys know me…I couldn’t let all that good fabric go to waste, so I decided to make

Pillow Covers

Pillow before and after by Every Day is an Occasion

Another great thing about her marking all over the curtains, not only did we get new curtains, but we now have 4 new pillow covers!!!! Each person in our family has a personal pillow now!! We each chose a color. Can you guess mine?  The Silver Sparkly one;) I lucked out!!! I was the last to choose too!!!;)

Pillows by Every Day is an Occasion

 To sew the pillows I actually used a tutorial that I have had pinned for a long time, envelope pillowcases!!!                  (Kelsie Ann thanks for inspiring me in your Pinterest March Challenge).

Then I used my Silhouette and cut the bunny shapes out in vinyl, which you can find here.

After I placed the vinyl on the Pillow cover, I used fabric paint to paint inside the vinyl stencil.

I let the paint dry and then I peeled the vinyl off and then ironed the paint to heat seal it.

Here are the four sweet bunnies in full view….

    Ha…C.U.T.E! Love the story too. Any chance Lily may use some markers again on her new bunny pillow? She may want to add bunny eyes and a nose..lol. You’ve inspired me to sew something. I’m getting closer to using my machine, I took the cover off yesterday. Thanks so much for hosting this hop! Hugs – Holly 🙂
