Instructions

  1. Lay white fabric out flat on a clean surface. Fold in half.
  2. Measure 22 inches on all four sides (to create a square) and cut out fabric through both layers to create two pieces. Repeat for pinstriped fabric.
  3. To create pillow covers, place fabrics right sides together and sew around three sides. Turn right side out.
  4. Squeeze puddles of Ebony and Crimson Red Soft Fabric Paint onto foil.
  5. Dip small paintbrush into Ebony then create the word “Bisous” on white pillow cover. Repeat process, covering entire pillow cover and randomly painting lip designs as desired in between the words. Refer to photo. Let dry. Note: If desired, first write out “Bisous” on pillow cover using chalk pencil, then cover over chalked words with paint.
  6. Paint in lips with Crimson Red. Let dry.
  7. Fold a large piece of contact paper in half and draw half of a heart on one side. Cut out through both layers to create a heart stencil.
  8. Peel backing from heart stencil and center on the pinstriped fabric. Press firmly in place, making sure all edges are sealed to prevent paint seepage.
  9. Squeeze a puddle of Azalea onto foil.
  10. Use large paintbrush to paint in heart with Azalea. Let dry and add a second coat if needed. Let dry and remove stencil.
  11. Using the small paintbrush, brush “J’adore” onto center of heart using Ebony. Let dry.
  12. Stuff pillows with Polyfil and sew pillow covers closed.
