Make Your Own Loteria Pillow


I love the look of the classic Mexican game, Loteria. It's kind of like Bingo, except there are tables of pictures with riddles instead of just calling out numbers. The imagery is gorgeous, and is always used in arts and crafts. So when iLoveToCreate came out with the new line of Tulip For Your Home and I saw all the motifs, I knew I'd be making Loteria pillow! Click below to see  how I did it - so you can too!
This is was my inspiration - La Rosa.



18" x 18" Pillow Cover
8" Motif Stencil, rose
14" large stencil, polka dots
Tulip Soft Fabric Paint
 Tulip® Paint Roller 
Tulip® Stencil Spray Adhesive


Other:

bleach pen, painter's tape

Wash and dry the pillow. Iron it and use the stencil spray on the back of the stencil and affix to the pillow. Use the bleach pen to fill in the holes. Let set for 10 minutes, then wash the pillow.



By the way, I think my dog wants to make this project, he sat and watched the entire time!

Mix the Tulip One-Step dye according to the package directions. While the pillow is still damp from washing, rubberband it. Add the dye and place it in a plastic bag to set for six hours, then wash and dry the pillow.


Iron the pillow. Apply the stencil spray to the back of the rose stencil and affix to the pillow. Now squeeze out some Tulip Soft Fabric Paint on a aper plate. Use the roller to apply the paint over the stencil.


The reason you want to do this is so that when you add the other color, it will look nice and vibrant!


Like this! Now let's add the black lettering!


Open your pack of Scribbles Alpha Stamps and before you use them, set out the letters so you will know how to space them before you add the paint.

I used La Rosa, here are some others you can use:

Lips: La Boca (mouth)
Butterfly: La Mariposa
Bird: El Pajaro
Flower: La Flor
Chandelier: La Luz (light)
Crown: La Corona

Use a sponge brush or pouncer to add paint the stamps and one-by-one press in place.

 For this one, I added a coat of gold glitter. I wish I had reversed the colors though, and painted a gold background with a pink or blue crown, but oh well, it still looks cool!

 I really like how the bleached dots and dye looks as the background!


Now my front patio has even more personality! Thanks for checking out my project!
