return on creativity: plaid painted pillow


Another painted pillow.  I just had to try my hand at plaid.


more masking tape and paint...


It's so magical when you pull the tape off...


Then perpendicular stripes...


I sewed this into another 16 inch square pillow with an envelope closure in the back.


This pillow turned out a bit more masculine...


...perfect for a leather chair.

wow! This is a super fantastic idea. What a great way to save on buying expensive fabric AND get exactly what you want, too!

I found you at Ladybird Ln, on her Sytlish blogger post. I love your two pillows - the plaid one and the rose one. I wish I had more talent to sew pillows. Will keep this in mind, if I'm daring enough to try.

I would love if you followed me at:
