Gobble Til You Wobble

Here's another pillow tutorial for y'all... First, cut the the size you want for your pillow out of dropcloth. My pillow is 15"x27".Second, make a stencil. I use a program called Sir Cuts Alot 2 for the Cricut. Unfortunately, this software is no longer available for the Cricut... Next, Sew the pieces of dropcloth together, then turn right side out. Now, spray some spray adhesive to the back of the stencil and center it on the pillow shell. Using Martha Stewart rollers, roll the paint over the stencil. Make sure you have some paper in between the pieces of fabric...Let the paint dry before stuffing and sewing the hole up.For kicks and giggles, I wrapped a piece of ribbon around the pillow.I brought in one of my benches from outside and set the pillow on it.I also broke out my Beadboard Turkeys. You can find the tutorial for those HERE.
A month ago, I went to the Wood Connection here in Utah and bought letters to spell "gobble". I got them home, sanded, painted, stained and glittered them to gussy them up.Doesn't it look great next to the Turkeys?

I am putting the stencil in my Etsy Shop.

Happy Thanksgiving!
