I've been wanting to paint my own pillowcase covers for a little while now, and the FREEZING COLD weather outside (-2 and snowing) has given me a little bit of free time indoors to attempt to make something cool.
I chose a neutral fabric for the actual pillowcase and cut out my "print" of a tree and leaves. I took the print, generously painted all over it, and then printed it onto the pillow!
I let them dry for a bit.... and hand painted a few ghetto areas that didn't print amazingly...
And then I hand sewed and stuffed it! My first pillow EVER! yay. And it already made some pillow friends!
Since I already had an epic fail of a bike ride today: numb hands and feet, sore face from hail-snow whipping me, and being so frozen that I had to turn around...I think that I will spiff up a couple of white shirts I have sitting around! Yay for terrible weather and arts and crafts and COFFEE.
