Mom's Day Throw Pillow
Help Mom relax this Mother’s Day by resting her head on a pretty, personalized pillow featuring the faces of her little ones in a garden setting. No fancy sewing ability is required. Six straight lines of stitching are all it takes. Print and cut the stencils included with my instructions onto card stock to paint the garden scene on the peach cotton pillow front. The back is solid purple corduroy. Got a big family? Reduce the size of the flower stencils and add as many faces as you like. The kids photos are easily printed from your inkjet printer onto a sheet of clear film and glued to the fabric. Mom, Mom, Mom! Is she going to love this!
This project can be cut with the Silhouette Curio machine, the Cameo 3, and other machines. Download the cut file above that's right for you or the pdf file which includes instructions and the bead templates.
COVER EXPOSED AREAS TO PREVENT ACCIDENTAL OVER SPRAY. ALLOW PAINT TO DRY BETWEEN STEPS.
step 10 - Protect areas outside the stencil. Airbrush the open areas with green paint. Allow paint to dry thoroughly before removing stencils.
step 14 - Step 14 - Use scissors to cut out the circle. Spray the printed surface lightly with Super 77 adhesive. Press the circle sticky side down into the center of the painted flower on the pillow fabric. Roll across the image with a round glass bottle to remove any air bubbles. The film is very soft and flexible making it ideal for fabric applications.
step 16 - Create the back of the pillow. Cut two pieces of purple corduroy, one 10” X 17” and one 13” X 17”. With an iron, press a .50” hem on each 17” edge. Now turn and press the hem again to measure 1”. The raw edge will be tucked inside. Sew the hems in place. The two finished pieces will measure 8.5” X 17 and 11.5” X 17”.
Place a pressing cloth over the painted areas and film if it’s necessary to iron the fabric.
