Decorating Pillows with Graphics


With all the rain that we have been having I decided to decorate a few pillows I had  on hand.  I have Mes Amis (Antique and vintage show) coming up in a few weeks and it is time to finish up a few projects.  
Here are my plain pillows:


The first pillow is a linen pillow that I had purchased knowing I wanted to add a little something to it.  The second pillow I made from some ticking fabric I had on hand. 
      I went to the Graphics Fairy.com and chose 2 different graphics for my pillows.  I then printed the designs on to TAP paper (transfer artist paper).  The next step is to iron on the image to the fabric and then you are done!  So easy and so cute!














I love how they turned out!

  6. Darrielle I found your pretty pillows at The DIY Show Off Party. Adding the graphics to the gorgeous linens took them up several notches - beautiful! TAP Paper...on my MUST get list. I recently tried the Freezer Paper method on a linen table runner and ended up having to hand paint the details because I couldn't get a nice transfer. This method looks so much easier!
