Let’s try home decor. It happens to be one of my favorite categories! When it comes to decor, I could change mine more than I like to admit. At some point though I realized I can still change up the look of a room while keeping my wallet in check. Pillows, friends. They have the magic touch. Plus, they are a LOT less expensive than buying a new sofa every few months and with the CAMEO they are even easier to create!
This little pillow is one of my favorites, a statement with simplicity! With the sewable fabric interfacing ironed to the back of a white cotton piece of fabric, I cut the ‘love’ shape with the CAMEO to create a fabric applique. Then, because it already had the interfacing on the back side I could iron it right to the black piece of fabric that would later become the pocket pillow cover.
After ironing the word onto the black fabric it had a pretty good bond so I didn’t feel like I had to stitch around the edges, but it does give it a little more texture and durability if you do. I used silver thread and the little bit of sparkle was the perfect touch.
Wouldn’t it be fun to take this concept and make a pillow for your kid’s room with a word or phrase they say all. the. time? Lot’s of possibilities with this simple idea!
