I have had a few emails about the One Direction bedroom I wrote about on an earlier blog post, so I thought I will do a few posts to answer some of them :) So this post is a full tutorial on how to make your own One Direction phrase pillow.
- blank pillowcase
- fabric paint
- sponge or brush
- craft knife
- cutting mat
The very first thing you need to do is get your hands on a blank pillowcase, I brought one for $4 from a dept store. Next is to go and download the One Direction font, its free so grab it and put it on your computer :)
Once you have this open up an art program (I used photoshop) type out your phrase
Figure out what size you would like on your pillow and print out A4 size. I just used cardboard but you could use freezer paper. After it is printed you then cut out each letter with your craft knife on your cutting board, be careful not to cut off any fingers ;p
Cut each A4 sheet to fit neatly on the pillow. Make sure you get the spacing correct and straight. Stick down with tape to stay in place if using the cardboard.
Insert cardboard or think layers of newspaper inside the pillowcase so the fabric paint does not bleed to the other side of the pillow.
Start dabbing the fabric paint on being careful to stay within the letters.
When you are putting the paint on hold down the stencil firmly with the opposite hand.
DONE! display your new One Direction word pillow on your bed to rest your head and have sweet 1D dreams.... <3 Your One Direction bedroom now has a cute new addition and you can be proud that you made it yourself :-)
This method can also be used for any phrase or design, be creative as you like!
I hope this helps some of your email questions
enjoy your weekend
