So when I had all my paint and brushes out for this vintage crate project, I had some burlap on had, so I went ahead and laid the stencil on the burlap, added some blue paint to the white, mixed, and away I went! It will help to have your burlap cut to size and folded in half before you begin stenciling. Once it is folded in half, place your stencil as you desire and paint! I did not have any bleed through as I did not have a heavy hand. So here is what you need to create this pillow.
-fabric liner (I used an old white sheet)
-pillow form (I used an old pillow...I save EVERYTHING!)
-basic sewing supplies...thread, pins, rotary cutter, machine
1. Using your tape measure, measure the height and width of your pillow. Now add a 1/2" to your width and double your height plus 1/2".
example - my pillow was 18" x 18"...so 36.5" x 18.5". This allows for 1/4" seams.
2. Next, cut your ALREADY STENCILED burlap and liner to your measurements.
3. Place both fabrics on top of one another and pin together. See below.
As seen above and below, all layers are pinned together.
I hope you enjoy making your pillow! As you can see in the pic above, I left the fold lines of the burlap. You make choose to iron your burlap using your iron on high heat with a damp rag over your burlap. I prefer the fold lines...it lends some character. In hindsight, I wish I would have added some staining using tea. I have an old flour sack with pale blue printing that definitely screams VINTAGE and it will be paired up with this pillow!
