- Contact paper or vinyl
- Craft knife or electronic cutter
- Foam brush
- White pearl acrylic paint
- Bronze pearl acrylic paint
- Fabric Medium
- Pom-pom trim
- Pillow form
- Cut your linen to the right size–my pillow (it’s a Christmas pillow actually) was an 18″ square so I cut my front piece 18.5″ square and then cut two back pieces 18.5″ x 24″
- Cut a big and little heart stencil from your contact paper using a craft knife or electronic cutter. Hearts are fun to free hand or you can find something to trace. Place the stencil on the pillow front, and press around the edges to get a good seal.
- Mix paint and fabric medium together (use directions on the fabric medium for the ratio), and dab the paint inside the stencil area. Try not to wipe or you’ll get bleeding under the stencil. Stencil the second little heart as well.
- Use the big stencil and the bronze paint once the little hearts are dry. Let bronze paint dry.
- Sew buttons onto the center of each heart and baste pom pom trim around the edges of the front piece. Now you’re ready to construct the pillow!
- Take your two back pieces and finish one of the 18.5″ edges on each piece by either turning 1/4″ and again another 1/2″ and hemming on your sewing machine or serging/sewing a 1/2″ hem. These finished edges are the envelope portion where you’ll stuff your pillow in.
- Lay the front piece on a flat surface, and with right sides together lay your back pieces on the front piece with finished edges toward the center of the pillow. They’ll overlap several inches, which is good. Pin the layers together.
- Sew around the edge of the pillow, sewing on the basting line of the pom pom trim. Now trim your corners, turn, and stuff your pillow inside!
