Paint-a-Pillow and Giveaway!

Paint-a-Pillow
 is a BRAND NEW sister company to Cutting Edge Stencils!
You know I have a love for painting stencils on fabric right?
(here and here)
Now they offer the perfect kit for painting custom pillows!
Paint a Pillow sent me a pillow kit of my choice and some additional supplies!
I picked the Casablanca Stencil...after nearly an hour of trying to decide!
 I loved this Houndstooth one they showcased:
http://paintapillow.com/index.php/houndstooth-paint-a-pillow-kit.html
 I knew I wanted to use lots of colors on mine too!
But went with the Moroccan shapes instead...

It arrives perfectly packaged in a kit for about $45!
Your choice of soft canvas fabric: white or natural...
 Kit Includes:
Your stencil of choice...
Stenciling frame (pat.pend.)
Reusable pillow stencil
17”x17” Cotton pillow cover
Pillow insert: linen/down alternative
Mini roller and 1/2" stencil brush
Paint tray and stirring stick
Illustrated instructions
Free mini stencil and practice fabric swatch
One free fabric paint (additional paint is $3.95)
 The pillow was set up and ready to go in my frame!
But the full instructions and videos are here
 I ordered lots of paint colors because I couldn't commit to just one color!
The paint is high quality textile paint and dries soft and comfortable!
 I decided to use all the colors on one pillow.
So I just picked a color and randomly painted a few shapes!
 Dab straight up and down with a light amount of paint on the brush.
 And then switch colors!
(note: careful not to touch your brush into other colors while painting...I had 1 mishap!)
 Added a few black and ready to remove the stencil!
 Gorgeous!  It's so bright and fun!
 Let it dry overnight to be sure and stuff!
Enjoy!
I love how bright and fun it turned out!
A perfect accent to my boring black!
Think of all the possibilities! 
There are tassels, studs and other fun accessories in the
 shop you can add to your pillows too!
 Find them on facebook too for lots of great inspiration!
I just had to do another pillow!
They sell the sewn pillow blanks, so you could make as many pillows as you want!
These would be so fun to do as a Young Women camp activity or Christmas gifts...
Or just to accent in the home!
This time I used just hot pink and the foam roller included in the kit!
Fill the roller with paint evenly and roll on the fabric!
It's so easy and really fast!
Just bend back the tabs to remove the stencil.
Cleans off easily in the tub--and the paint dries quickly!
Next I used some embroidery floss and a darning needle
to sew these cute suede tassels on the corners!
Just tied off inside should keep them fine for a few years!

Then it's ready to stuff the fluffy pillow insert inside!
So much fun and so much variety even with one stencil pattern!
 Which design would you pick?
The best part is that ONE lucky reader will win a kit of their choice too!

Contest ends September 30th!

Peony is my favorite so far.

I narrowed it down to 3....the Dahlia, the Fern or the Hedgehog. Seriously how did you decide?

elisaashley said...

Julia! But there are several that I like. It's ridiculously addicting!

Can I change my mind to Japanese Peonies? I have a peony "thing" -- they remind me of my Gramma, and I need that right now.

Ruth Griffeth said...

So many choices, I really love the Athena, Diamond Damask, Magnoila, and also the Shipibo, I have to pick just one and I guess it would be the Shipibo! Love them all
