Hey, everyone! It’s Tammy from White Lilac Farmhouse here! I am going to show you how to create your own patriotic pillowcases!
- Cotton Pillow Cover
- Pillow Insert
- Large Star Stencil
- Tacky Spray Adhesive
- Dixie Belle’s Silk All-In-One Mineral Paint in Deep Sea
- Chip Paint Brush
- Piece of Cardboard
- Red Embroidery Thread
- Embroidery Needle
- Embroidery hoop (optional)
- Old Tea Towel
First, lay out pillowcase with a piece of cardboard inside of it. Find a star stencil of your choosing, place on the pillowcase and apply paint with the Chip Brush.
Next, after the pillowcase has dried fully, you’re going to outline the star using the “Running Stitch” technique.
After that, in order to preserve the paint on the fabric, we’re going to have to heat set it. Turn your iron on the silk setting and place a thin piece of fabric between the iron and the pillowcase. After ironing about several times, your pillowcase is ready to be completed with the pillow insert!
Lastly, style your pillowcase into your desired setting and enjoy!
