When I want to make something quick and cute to update my space, pillows are always my go-to project. Fast, easy and inexpensive – they’re the perfect little something to breath new life into a room. This week I’m sharing how to make a graphic print pillow – with a little pom pom fringe to kick up the cuteness!
Let’s start with getting the graphic on the fabric. First I ran a print through my computer, which I learned from Gail at My Repurposed Life. She shares a great tutorial on how to print directly on fabric. I printed mine on muslin, which takes the ink very, very well. If you can’t find the sheets Gail mentions, you can also use regular cardstock sprayed with a little low tack adhesive – it works fabulously.
Once your print is dry, carefully trim out around it with 1/2 inch or so around the graphic. I used the wire birdcage – but any print will work.
Next, place the graphic on the right side of your pillow front and stitch around the edge of the image to secure it to the pillow. The machine will slightly fray the graphic a bit, adding a vintage touch.
