Hello All!

Here is my super awesome orange pillow.  I love it so much!!  I used plain orange fabric and stencilled the birds in a brick color.  It sat on my sewing desk, stencilled and unsewn for weeks.  Then I just whipped it up lickety-split.  I'm very pleased!

Cool stencil! Where'd you get the image? What technique did you use?

Stencil came from Stencilry.  (Link can be found in Craftser's stencilling forum).  Stencil was cut from freezer paper, ironed on, then painted with three coats of paint (over three days).  Removed paper, and ironed it to set the paint.  Yay!  Now go fill the world with orange bird pillows!
