Painted Pillow Nest Copy

I recently got an email from The Nest for their new magazine.  Page 4 was my inspiration for this painted pillow.

I quickly made a pillowcase out of leftover curtain material and put in a pink zipper that I had.  (and no, I didn't break out my zipper foot for my machine...I just winged it with the b foot)
Swiper no swipee!
 I grabbed the acrylic and fabric paint colors, I had on hand, and used a foam brush to make my paint swipes.  I let it dry and then put a cloth over top and ironed it to seal the paint.  Now I can wash it if need be and the paint should stay true to its color.  

Then I stuffed it with the poly-stuffing and zipped it close.   Viola! 
 My baby loves the park!  The weather had been particularly nice as of late.  She loves the swing here too!

And wants to start driving soon!
Mommy, can I take this home?
How have you been enjoying your summer?

  2. I love the colors and the rustic look of the paint. I might have to try that idea! Thanks for sharing!
