|a pillow for my boy|
time to put purchasing aside and make something instead. i was hooked on this pillow as soon as i read diy personalised pillow with ... stencils! the shelterness website has a great, good to follow tutorial on how to use stencils to personalise a pillowcase for your home. this creation is also pinned to my general crafts board on pinterest.
all you need is a permanent or fabric marker, cushion cover, cardboard, pencil, ruler, and stencils. for this pillow i asked ben for his favourite places around the world, most he hasn't visited but loves the monuments of the city or country, or has some connection to them. the pencil and ruler are for ruling straight lines on the pillow, and the card goes inside the cover of the pillow so there is no seepage through to the reverse side of the marker.
|the materials needed|
|rule pencil lines and begin!|

outcome: a rustic
thanks goes to the shelterness website for the cool tutorial that was really easy to follow and gave me plenty of inspiration to make a pillow befitting my boy peep!
