Hi everyone Heather here with my first DT project!
Today I'm sharing a tutorial how to add stamped images to cotton pillow cases.
enjoy creating custom décor pieces for the home. This is a set of cotton pillow cases that I added a design of Romantic Roses on Ferns, at the border edge of the pillow cases. To prepare these pillow cases I washed them with NO fabric softener, tumbled dry and them ironed them on high setting with steam. To create this design I used ArtFoamies sponge stamps:
Fern Leaf, www.artfoamies.com/store/p193/Fern_Leaf.html ,
Rebekah Meier: Mesh,www.artfoamies.com/store/p356/Rebekah_Meier%3A_Mesh.html ,
Art by Marlene: circle salad, www.artfoamies.com/store/p494/ArtByMarlene%3A_Circle_Salad.html ,
Art by Marlene: Leaf Geo, www.artfoamies.com/store/p389/ArtByMarlene%3A_Leaf_Geo.html
Here is how they look on the pillows
In this close up view you can see the soft images of ArtFoamies Fern Leaf, www.artfoamies.com/store/p193/Fern_Leaf.html, in the background. That was the first pattern layer I put on in a gold mix of DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics. Next is a soft overlay of DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics Gold, using the ArtFoamies, Rebekah Meier: Mesh, www.artfoamies.com/store/p356/Rebekah_Meier%3A_Mesh.html , to soften the appearance of the first layer. Over these soft layers I added the roses in DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics, Cobalt Teal and a mix with white, using one of the ArtFoamies designs from Art By Marlene: Circle Salad, www.artfoamies.com/store/p494/ArtByMarlene%3A_Circle_Salad.html. For the last layer of this design I used one of the leaf designs from ArtFoamies, Art By Marlene: Leaf Geo,
www.artfoamies.com/store/p389/ArtByMarlene%3A_Leaf_Geo.html , with a combination of DecoArt Media Acrylics Green Gold and Veridian. As a final touch I added a couple of dots of DecArt Media Acrylics Hansa Yellow Med, to the centers of the roses using the handle end of my paint brush. To finish my project I heat set the paint by ironing on the reverse side of the fabric, at the cotton setting for about 3 minutes, and without steam.
Here's the step by step video tutorial:
Here is the pillow case shown with a custom designed bamboo tissue box on the night stand beside it. The tissue box was also decorated with ArtFoamies stamps.
I hope you enjoyed the project!
