I’m not much of a seamstress so, I love it when I can throw together a cute pillow without busting out my sewing machine.

 

Hobby Lobby has some great pillowcases that come in a bag and they can range in price depending on the material.  I like the plain linen one, because it gives me a blank canvas to work with.  You can decorate these pillowcases easily with paint using stencils, iron ons and you could even sew on your own design.

Here are my Supplies:

  • 18×18 pillow (JoAnn’s $14.99 after using a 40% coupon)
  • 18×18 pillow case ( Hobby Lobby $3.00 after using a 40% coupon)
  • Polka dot burlap (JoAnn’s $9.99 yard)
  • Circuit iron on for lettering ( JoAnn’s $9.99)
  • Red embroidery thread and needles  ( Michaels $1.29 & $2.99)
  • Heat-n-Bond iron on adhesive (Michaels $2.99)

Total: $45.24

*Keep in mind you have plenty of burlap for other projects.  You really don’t need a yard if your just doing a little design.

With this particular pillow I took a piece of polka dot burlap I found at JoAnn’s and cut out a heart shape. I fused it to the pillow with the heat-n-bond. Next, I cut out the letters with my Cricut machine.  Don’t worry if you don’t have a machine you can use a stencil for the lettering.  I just happened to find red glittery iron on that matched the red on the burlap so I went with that.  Once I had everything iron on I topped off the heart with some red embroidery ribbon around the edges.  Super easy and fast!  I think all together it took be around an hour to finish.  The most time consuming part is going around the edges with the embroidery thread.

Here is the finished pillow.
