Project Details

  • Level:intermediate
  • Time:1 hour

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Allow paint to dry between applications. Project time does not include this drying time.
  • 2
    Lay out first, light-colored fabric out flat on a clean surface. Fold in half.
  • 3
    Measure 22 inches on all four sides (to create a square) and cut out fabric through both layers to create two pieces. Repeat for second fabric.
  • 4
    To create pillow covers, place fabrics right sides together and sew around three sides. Turn right side out.
  • 5
    Squeeze puddles of Ebony and Crimson Red onto foil.
  • 6
    Dip small paintbrush into Ebony then create the word Ā“BisousĀ” on light-c;olored pillow cover. Repeat process, covering entire pillow cover and randomly painting lip designs as desired in between the words. Refer to photo. Let dry. Note: If desired, first write out Ā“BisousĀ” on pillow cover using chalk, cover over chalked words with paint and then brush off any chalk that is showing.
  • 7
    Paint in lips with Crimson Red.
  • 8
    Fold a large piece of contact paper in half and draw half of a heart on one side. Cut out through both layers to create a heart stencil.
  • 9
    Peel backing from heart stencil and center on the second, darker-color fabric. Press firmly in place, making sure all edges are sealed to prevent paint seepage.
  • 10
    Squeeze a puddle of Azalea onto foil.
  • 11
    Use large paintbrush to paint in heart with Azalea. Add a second coat if needed (and after the first coat has completely dried). Remove stencil.

  • 13
    Stuff pillows with Polyfil and sew pillow covers closed.
