In other news... I didn't make it through this week's challenge on One Month to Win It. I really enjoyed my time in the contest - particularly the extra incentive to try to be really creative and do something different each week. On the other hand, it was hard work trying to be really creative and do something different each week. So it is nice to have a break.
But I do have one last (awesome) project to share from the competition.
I decided some happy pillows were in order. My first task after sewing the basic pillow cover was to choose some nice, peppy sayings for my pillows. (I'm a sucker for typography in design.) I was lucky enough to pick up a great set of alphabet stamps at a yard sale last summer. I mixed some craft paint with fabric medium and then painted it on the stamps and stamped the pillow covers.
I gathered some colorful fabric scraps and cut out my bunting pieces. I simply used stitch witchery to attach them to the pillow covers and then filled them with some down pillow inserts I had on hand.
I love the contrast between the playful bunting and the linen background. Happy pillows for sure.
Anyone else obsessed with using letters and words in decor? Do you have a favorite saying you display in your home?
And don't foget to enter to win a stencil of your choice from Cutting Edge Stencils if you haven't yet.
