Burlap Pillow

Tonight I did another fun and easy craft for Halloween. I saw this idea on another blog and decided to give it a try. Thanks U Create for the cute idea! It was soooo easy and it turned out way cute!

All I did was take some burlap material and cut two rectangles the same size. I printed out the word "BOO" on my vinyl machine and used the vinyl as a stencil. I stuck the vinyl to one of the burlap rectangles and put some paper behind so when I painted it with my black craft paint it wouldn't bleed through. After I painted the letters I let it dry and then pulled the vinyl off. I then, took the other piece of burlap and sewed the two together (wrong sides together), leaving a 1.5" seam and an opening for the stuffing. Pretty easy so far right?
I stuffed it, sewed up the hole, and then pulled out all the strings from the 1.5" ceam so it got that frayed look. And wha la! I love it!

I also plan on making another one for Thanksgiving with the word "Thankful" or "Give Thanks" What do you think? If any of you make one I'd love to see it too.
