You Will Need...

  • Canvas fabric from JoAnn's (about 1/2 yard depending on pillow form)
  • Alphabet stencil
  • Plaid acrylic craft paint
  • Sponge pouncer
  • Pillow form
  • Scissors
  • Needle
  • Thread
  • Sewing machine if available
  • Steam iron
  • Paper
  • Pen
Estimated Time:
  • Step 1

    I measured the pillow form and stayed well within those measurements while I traced my wording out before I began to stencil.Next I used my sponge paint pouncer to apply black acrylic paint to stencil on the letters. As I moved from letter to letter, I placed a few sheets of blank copy paper over each area I had just stenciled to protect it from smearing.Once I was done I let the paint dry and stitched together the front and back of my pillow with a 1/2 inch seam allowance. Turning the cover right side out and putting the pillow form in was next. The last step was to simply whip stitch the last seam across the bottom shut and my y'all pillow was complete!
