I’m all about easy DIY projects and this one is just that. I got a chance to try out some of the new Silhouette fabric ink from Studio Calico. I’ve been wanting a deer silhouette pillow so I figured this was the perfect time to make one!
Cut the freezer paper waxy side down. I used the cut settings Speed 3, Thickness 10, Blade 1
I bought a plain pillow with removable cover but if you’re handy enough to make your own cover you can do that too. IKEA carries just pillow covers as well. Place a piece of cardboard inside to protect the other side.
Iron the freezer paper onto the fabric waxy side down with the steam setting turned OFF.
I like to use these foam dabber brushes on stenciled projects because it allows you to dab (not brush) the paint on for a much cleaner line.
Apply ink only in a dabbing motion
Once dry, carefully remove the freezer paper – it will come off pretty easily!
Dry iron over the paint to “set” again making sure the steam setting is OFF. That’s it! If you don’t have a die cutting machine you can print and trim your design with a craft knife.
Be careful though, it’s addicting! Now what to stencil next…
