Silhouette Pillow Project

Things needed for project;

one solid color toss pillow, silhoulette stencil, stencil tape, stencil brushes, and stencil fabric paint in different colors.

Place the stencil on the center of the pillow and attach with tape to hold in place. Place stencil brush into paint and gently dab it on to palette board.  Leave small amount of paint, add onto stencil area on pillow by carefully dabbing brush covering area until completing entire stencil.  Carefully, remove tape and stencil to make sure that paint hasn't bled through the covered parts of the stencil.  Let pillow dry for two days and place on sofa or bed.  It is a nice decorative piece, the fabric paint instructions should state how many washings the paint could withstand on the item before it states to fade or wash away.  It is a good idea to keep pillow from getting dirty or dusty.  It is a great way to make an ordinary thrift store pillow extraordinary!
