|From Uptowncountryhome.com - Not the exact one (the one I saw was about 10" x 10" and had blue ticking) but close|
So while the pillow wasn't "Pinspired", I wasn't sure how to cleanly get a quote on fabric without painting or using a stencil... so off to Pinterest I went. A lot of sites said that using paper, spray adhesive, and an inkjet printer was the way to go... but I didn't have any spray adhesive. Then in the comments section of one of the sites, someone mentioned that using freezer paper was a better method... and that I did have. Because I already had the fabric, freezer paper, inkjet printer, and sewing machine, the cost for this project was free. Much better than $24.99 for something very similar!
Want to make your own? You'll need:
• Freezer paper (not wax paper)
• Fabric (if you're making a small pillow like mine, you'll need two pieces at 8.5"x11" each.)
• Polyfiber or other pillow filler
You'll also want:
• An inkjet printer (not laser)
• A sewing machine
• An iron
If you're making your own quote, you'll want to download the font "Bebas Neue" from Dafont.com.
If you want my quote, I'm sharing it in .PDF format with you lovelies :) (but please do not abuse this and use for profit... please only use for your personal use.) Document Here
A quick rundown if you're making your own quote:
• Change the layout to "landscape" so the paper is horizontal.
• Change your font to Bebas Neue
• Center your quote on the page
• Play with the spacing on your quote until you find what you think looks best. Mine was a combination, line by line spacing so the quote would have that block quote look. I believe it ranged from 10 pts to 16 pts.
• My font size was 77. You may need to adjust yours according to how long your font is.
Now back to if you're going to use the quote I provided...
Open the quote .PDF in Adobe Reader or other similar program. Get your inkjet hooked up if it's not already.
Pick out your fabrics. Each piece has to be 8.5"x11". You may find that tracing a piece of paper is helpful.
You've got a very cute quote pillow! The finished size is about 7.5" x 10", so not very large but a nice little decorative piece. And yes, it's easier to read in real life... the picture distorted it a little, haha. I imagine you could probably do something similar with an 11"x17" piece too!
And here is the back!
Hope you enjoyed this tutorial. Do you have a special quote you're going to use? Tell me all about it! I'd love to see what you create. See you next week, have a great weekend!
