Good Morning

When working on the boys bedroom I got the idea to make speech bubble pillow cases.  Just a quirky, cute little thing.  And because Vincent likes to use two pillows at night, but the throw pillows aren’t soft enough.

I bought navy cases from Wal-Mart, then made a Photoshop template and grabbed our freezer paper.

Using a pencil, I traced my design on the matte side of the paper.

And cut out the letters.

For my design, I wanted to keep the letters and bubble surround navy and fill in with white.

I used a hot iron to adhere the templates to the corner of each pillow.

And filled in with white fabric paint.

A little paint got under the paper, but it wasn’t enough to bother me.

After letting the painted cases dry flat for three days, I turned them inside out to wash and dry.  Good to use, and cute to boot.  If you want to make your own, here’s the design I used.

A little personal touch really can take something plain and turn it into something completely custom.  And it’s so cute to see their heads on the pillows, saying good morning or night.

  1. Cute!
    Sidenote: Ever since Google Reader went away, I have been reading my blogs on Bloglovin. Your posts don’t show up there until a day or two after you post them. Not sure if it matters but I figured I would let you know. 🙂

  2. Love this idea! Seriously cute! I could make something similar with my silhouette cameo! Love it.

  3. Oh man, this would look so sloppy if I had done it. I love doing little craft and sewing projects…I just need people to not look too closely at the finished product.

    1. Hi Angie!

      Well, the freezer paper does a decent job for the stencil… I think everything handmade has imperfections. That’s to be expected and my project are no different. 🙂

      Thanks!

  4. I love this whole room. It’s so fun and colorful. The pillow is an adorable idea! I have been brainstorming ideas for my little guys “big boy room” lately as well. Great job here!

    1. Hi Joy!

      Aww, thanks so much! Making boys rooms can be tough, but it was really fun to have their opinions and make something we’re all happy with. Have fun with your little guy’s room!

      Thanks!
