It’s no secret that I LOVE anything spotted (and it seems like Liz and I have that in common!)… and these pillowcases are no exception! They do a great job of brightening up my bedroom, and make me so happy just looking at them!
Here’s how you can make some too…
- Blank cotton pillowcase/s (pre-washed, dried, ironed)
- Old cardboard or newspaper
- Fabric paint – like this fluorescent pink or this set
- Small bowl for paint
- A pencil (or something else to stamp with)
*I think the fabric paint I used was actually meant for airbrushing, so it was quite runny and bled a little bit. A slightly thicker paint would probably be better.
Spread out your pillowcase and place folded newspaper or cardboard inside to stop the paint seeping through to the other side).
If necessary, put your paint into the small bowl. Dip the end of your pencil into the paint and stamp it onto the pillowcase. Keep doing that until the whole pillowcase is covered. Allow to dry overnight.
Once the paint is dry, take the newspaper/cardboard out, and set the paint according to the instructions (For me it was ironing the print inside out for a few minutes).
Once set, wash and dry your pillowcase before putting it to use!
