|an eggstremely good hiding place!|
day 289 and i am off to hospital this afternoon for my operation so i wanted to make sure i did a home decor easter craft before i went so i can decorate for easter when i return home :)
i am using purchased pillows to make this craft a little more doable in a short time frame. i printed out the silhouettes at A4 size then cut them out before tracing them on heat'n'bond. i then cut these out again before ironing the material to the reverse side, good side up. then it was a case of cutting around the material and then ironing them in place on the pillow. i plan to finish them off using a blanket stitch and some embroidery thread while i am in hospital recovering. if you don't feel like doing this last step there is no need to as the heat'n'bond will hold the silhouettes in place without any worries.

|so easy even a manly-man can do it.....thats steves hairy arm!|
|cut them out and we are ready to apply to cushions|
|peel off backing and iron on......easy if you take the stuffing out of the pillow beforehand, hard if you don't!|
my thanks goes to craft jr for the very cute silhouettes. they were so easy to use and worked brilliantly on the pillows.
