How do you think I should go about making these pillows?

You could embroider them, but I think painting with fabric paint would be the easiest.  Those will be awesome!  Bette Davis Eyes!

Fabric paint stencilling.

Screenprinting would be good, too, if you know how.

I agree that screen printing would be the best (long-lasting and professional looking) way to do this, but it would also be most expensive and confusing if you've never done it before. I would run out and buy some good fabric paint, then draw the image out in chalk and paint! Remember to slip some cardboard in between so than the paint doesn't ruin the other side of the pillow. The only down side to this is that the paint might not hold up too well in the wash, which stinks since pillowcases need to be washed pretty often. Love Urban Outfitters by the way!

If you want to do them super quick and easy you could always buy the iron on ink transfers. This way you could get the exact design you wanted with no mess and little cost.
