Happy Canada Day to all my
Thought I would share with you a burlap pillow
I made for my girls.
craft paint, white and red
Maple Leaf stencil
cotton fabric for pillow insert
I cut my fabric 20 x 20 "
4" on each side I painted my red border stripe
in the centre I painted on the white
While that was drying ,
I cut a 20"x 10" x 2 for my pillow insert
Sewed all the edges leaving an opening to stuff with the polyester stuffing.
Then I stuffed it full and stitched it closed.
Now back to the burlap.
I centred my maple leaf stencil on the white and proceeded to paint it in with my red paint..
Then while it was drying I cut another piece of 20 x 20" burlap for the backing.
I folded the fabric in two and cut , now having two seperate pieces
I did the same with the painted piece of burlap.
Now I have 2 pillows.
Sewed the right sides together leaving an opening at one end and inserted the
Then I folded the ends in and stitched close to the edge......
There you have it I now have two pillows, but in my case I made 4.
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial!
From my home to yours Happy Canada Day!
