Today Is The Day For Being Awesome – Freezer Paper Stencil Pillow

Today is the day for being awesome pillow

I absolutely love making pillows!  Pillows can be very expensive, and if you are like me and like to change your home decor often, then buying new pillows to match your decor is not an option.   When I saw this Today is the Day For Being Awesome image on in the Silhouette Online Store, I new I had to make a pillow using it.  Now every time I see it, I smile.  I used the freezer paper stencil method to make my pillow.  It is so simple and inexpensive, a must try if you haven’t used it before…

 Once the entire area is covered, pull your stencil up.  You want to do this while the paint is still wet.

  Let dry, then you can sew your pillow using whichever method you prefer.
