I really wanted some additional cute pillow cases for our bed in the new home. I found a few cute ones online, but they were all white pillowcases with small graphics priced around $40 dollars. I decided I could make my own drawings and stencil them for about $15, so that's exactly what I did. Here's a tutorial and some vector graphics for you to use as well!
What You'll Need
Iron & Ironing Board
PDF Stencil (Download)
8.5" x 11" White Shipping Labels OR Freezer Paper & 8.5" x 11" Printer Paper
Fabric Paint in Two Colors (I chose gold and red)
2 Standard Pillowcases
Warm your iron up to the cotton/linen setting. Once hot, iron the pillow case. Then, either peel the backing off and place the stencil down (shipping label) OR place the stencil with the coating side down (freezer paper) where you want it on your pillowcase. For both options, iron evenly across the stencil for about a minute. (This makes the freezer paper stick and the shipping label flat and stick better)
Allow to dry for a few hours. Then carefully peel the paper off the fabric and allow to dry overnight.
Place pillows inside, and voila! A nice, inexpensive way to spice up a room.
