About a year ago, I found a set of four linen napkins the same color as my bedroom. I love cloth napkins, but I thought they’d make nice pillows for my bedroom. They’re kind of a Tiffany blue color. Nice, right?
I saw these pillows in a Ballard catalog and then on a Pinterest post and thought I’d try to recreate them.
I started by printing “Mr.” And “Mrs.” on my printer. The black is out, so I had to use red.
I laid the template on a sheet of shelf liner that is tacky on the bottom and used an exacto knife to cut out the letters.
Next, I laid the stencil on the napkin. The sticky side helped keep it in place.
I used see fabric paint and put on several coats, allowing some drying time in between.
I’m not completely happy with it because the paint bled a little, likely because I was impatient. I didn’t have time to complete the pillows, but here is what I have done so far.
What do you think?
