I love ANYTHING black and white and when I set out to plan my blog project for ilovetocreate this month, I knew it HAD to be black and white and it had to be another pillow (I truly have a pillow addiction!) As I have mentioned in previous posts, our house (not my studio) is all white with black accents and a few pops of color. I like to change up the pillows on our white couch and for a while I've had the idea to create a very bold and graphic pillow with lots of contrast.
I started with a black t-shirt. I needed dark fabric and wasn't in the mood to go the store so I upcycled an old t-shirt!
I cut it into a square.
I decided to use Tulip's "spirit" iron on transfers. A product that would typically get used for clothing or more athletic themed projects were PERFECT to use in a completely different way.
I cut them out and placed them around the fabric in different directions.
I ironed each of the numbers onto the surface.
Once they were cool, I peeled the backing off.
Next, I pinned the front and back wrong sides facing together and sew the edges down.
I turned the pillow right side out, stuffed and sewed the opening together.
And there you have it- a black and white pillow to add to my lovely collection of pillows.
p.s. it even matches our cat Jack :)
