If you haven’t been over to The Stories of A to Z, then you’ve missed out. Shame on you. Since Beth is my blog friend, I knew I could totally take advantage of our friendship and ask her to be my first guest blogger! She certainly didn’t disappoint. Enjoy!
Hello all of you J-a-Girl-Junkies! Right now I am doing my best Happy Dance over the opportunity to be guest posting today. (Just imagine Beyonce’ at her best. I’m sure that’s exactly what my Happy Dance looks like.) When I asked Chris what she’d like me to share with you all today, she said, “I just want you to say ‘Look at me and how talented I am’.” Oh. Okay. No pressure. If you stick with me through this post you may not see much talent, but you will learn how to make a fantastic pillow without sewing a stitch!
- Drop cloth
- Tea towel (optional)
- Avery T-Shirt transfers
- Stitch Witchery (hem tape)
- Fabric glue
- Ribbon, buttons, fringe, bling (optional)
- Old pillow or pillow form
Step 5: Seal up three sides of your pillow with hem tape and turn it right side out. You are now ready to put on some bling! You can print out any image of your choice onto your transfer paper and iron it directly to your pillow. I like to use tea towels instead to add a little extra somethin’-somethin’.
Step 6: Use fabric glue to glue on your iron-on, ribbon, and buttons. Of course you can sew this part by hand, but if you’re
lazy short on time fabric glue works too! You’re almost done, so be sure to admire you’re work at this point…and your toes.
Step 8: Worship the beauty of your handiwork with lots of praise, admiration, and paparazzi . This pillow is for my friend, Michael’s, bedroom, but seeing how cute it looks on my own bed I’m now wishing that my last name began with W. Michaela requested that I leave the top open as a little pocket. Perhaps she and her husband can use it to exchange love notes.
