I made this little pillow using a few little embroidery designs and a bleach pen.  Instead of turning the fabric white like I though, the bleach turned the fabric a surprising shade of deep red.  Happy accident I guess Smiley



The pen is surprisingly easy to use, and leaves the fabric soft and touchable when you're done, unlike fabric paints.  You can get all sorts of colors from different fabrics.



Its snuggly!  This is just a pillow cover, it's really easy to make and it's totally removable.



And here I thought the only use the bleach pen would be was to bleach little skulls into my jeans.  Who knew.

That looks really cool!  I wonder if you know what type of fabric you used was (ie. cotton, rayon, etc.)? Thanks!

Well done!  Did you machine embroider this or is that done by hand, because if it was done by hand I'm mesmerized how much it looks machine done, professional. Was the pillow store bought, or did you create that too?  What kind of fabric is it done out of?  Curious!

Human rights are for EVERYONE.  Did you know that Aung San Suu Kyi had been released from house arrest in Burma? Many other prisoners of conscience are still being detained.  Please research this topic... Amnesty International needs your help.

The skulls are a machine embroidery design from the site.  I'm not that good at hand embroidery yet Smiley  the project would work just the same for hand embroidery though.
This is just a pillow cover, I stuffed an old blue pillow inside it, so I didn't make the form.  And the fabric...er...I have to go check.... Smiley
