I am SO sorry for missing yesterday. Luke was sick yesterday and so my plans were altered a bit. By the time I finished my project it was late, dark, and I could not get a decent picture. So I decided to wait until this morning. :)
I have a home decor project today! I was intrigued by this one when I first pinned it because it involved a sharpie. ;-)
Here is the original pin…
And here is my version…
I was amazed at how a sharpie really does work! I used canvas for my pillows and decided to add some little rolled flowers for color. It seemed so unnatural to write on a pillow with a permanent marker. I kept hearing my voice saying, “You only draw on paper!” I’ve only said that a million times to a certain little 3 year old. :) But after stuffing the pillow…I just kinda went for it. I did it free hand but if that makes you nervous you can definitely sketch it with a pencil first.
I liked doing the writing after I stuffed because then I knew exactly where the writing would end up. However, writing before stuffing would give you a flat surface to work on. I would just keep the lettering towards the center.
I think they are a fun addition to my holiday decor. I have some canvas left so I might make a smaller one for my love seat. And now I am trying to come up with some other fun projects using a sharpie…hmmm…. ;-)
