fabric paint pillow Freezer Paper Stencil PillowI’m madly in love with this vintage bamboo chair I found at emily co. If you’re in the Raleigh, NC area go check out her Facebook page to see all the cool stuff she has in stock.swiss cross diy Freezer Paper Stencil Pillow

The rug came from RugsUSA during their last 70% off sale. I’m totally loving black and white right now.

I normally give furniture that I find a total makeover, but I didn’t want to change a thing about this chair. Maybe it just needed a pillow.

I found this swiss cross fabric at Spoonflower but at $17.50 plus s&h I knew I was too cheap for that. So I made a little swiss cross pillow with freezer paper stencil and some black fabric paint.

I cut two pieces of white linen fabric (21″ x 13″). And pinned the black piping in between. Sew together leaving a hole for stuffing. Remember always sew right sides together.diy freezer paper stencil pillow Freezer Paper Stencil Pillow

I used freezer paper (found at Wal-Mart) to create my stencils. And with the help of my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the crosses. But you could cut them out by hand also (if you’re ambitous/ slightly crazy)freezer paper stencil how to Freezer Paper Stencil Pillow

Place a piece of cardboard in between the two layers of fabric (so the paint doesn’t bleed through). I had already sewn my pillow cover together so I had to squeeze the cardboard through the hole (maybe not the best way to do it).

I used black fabric paint and applied the paint using a stencil brush. In an up and down motion.plus sign stencil Freezer Paper Stencil Pillow

The paint bled under the stencil in a few tiny spots but overall it left perfectly crisp lines.
