How To: Cozy Up this Season with this DIY Typographic Pillow Project

Pillows are the best way to change up a room for the new season.  And nothing is more cuddly and warm then a soft flannel shirt.  This fun flannel pillow is sure to encourage some quality time on the sofa.

Here's what you'll need:

Start by printing out the template and using an x-acto knife (or take a short cut [like I did] and use a personal cutting machine like a Cricut Machine) cut out the freezer paper stencil, shiny side down. 

If you are using a plaid flannel, be sure to cut on the lines so that the lines are square with the pillow edges.  Cut two 20" squares of the fabric.

Center the stencil on one of the pieces of fabric.  Be sure to line up the letters with the lines in the fabric.

Using a hot iron with the steam turned out, iron on the stencil to adhere it to the fabric.

Using the sponge stencil and the black paint, dab the paint on to the fabric.

When the paint is dry, you can peel off the stencil.

To set the paint.  Iron onto the painted letters directly or place the painted fabric into the dryer on high for 10 mins.

Now place the good sides of the fabric together and stitch around the pillow, leaving an opening to put the pillow insert in.  Then top stitch the pillow opening closed.  

I think it could be cute to make a pair of pillows and the other one could say "Get Cozy".
