Stenciled Chevron Pillow & A Cutting Edge Stencil Giveaway!

Stenciled Chevron Pillow at

I have adored all of the chevron pillows I have seen everywhere.  They can get a little pricey, and you know me, I like to make my own pillows whenever possible.  When I was given the chance to use and review a stencil from Cutting Edge Stencils, I immediately knew which one I wanted to try!  I have been working on Kate’s Cottage Bedroom for the past month, and revealed it last week.  Well, even though I thought it was finished, we ended up getting a new bed for ourselves, which meant Cam got our queen, and Kate inherited his full bed.  Well…that meant she needed a few more pillows.  So, I decided to make a cute chevron pillow to match the rest of her bedding.

How to stencil a pillow at

Before starting, I put a large piece of plastic down on my kitchen floor.  I then laid out a large piece of white canvas fabric and laid my chevron stencil on top of it.

I used a stenciling brush to dab my paint on.  I started by dabbing my paint on the outer edges and working my way to the middle.

I then let the paint dry, but pulled my stencil up before the paint was completely dry to keep it from bleeding underneath the stencil.

I cut my fabric in the shape of a standard bed pillow and turned it right side in to sew around 3 sides.  I then turned it right side out and slid a pillow in.  I decided to make a cute fabric flower for a little extra detail.  I love the way this pillow turned out…stenciling pillows is so easy and inexpensive…it’s one of my absolute favorite things to do!

    Great giveaway! The pillow turned out really cute. I like the added flower, too. It adds such a personal touch.

    I’m curious, how does painted fabric feel to the touch? {Obviously, I’ve never painted fabric, :) }

    • says

      Thanks, Sharon! The paint isn’t soft to the touch…slightly rough. I use the stenciled pillows for looks more than comfort for sure :)

  2. says

    I would stencil my Master Bedroom if I won. I think I would try a smaller project first though until I got the hang of it.
