daily cushion challenge:: four

on day four, i made a silhouette felt pillow!


there are a whole bunch of great tutorials out there but it all required a silhouette cutter, fabric paint or freezer paper. but i didn't have either in my house so i sucked it up and came up with my own plan!!

thanks my little burst of inspiration!

so i started by picking a cutie picture. (p.s. he has the best side profile in the family!!) and photoshopped it. then on the home printer, i ran a copy of it and cut out the shape. then traced it on grey felt, which i always have at home. on hindsight, i could have just skipped the entire photoshop process which would have saved about 80% of the time! :)


then i sewed it on my cushion cover and silhouette pillow is done! :) 

my cushion collection is starting to look a little messy with various design elements, colours and styles. so i added little ruffles hoping that this pillow will play nice with number one. im excited to see that all together!!

one more day and counting!! :)
