Well, I have been a busy little bee around here. I've been working on my Southern Artisan Page, which you should check out because it is full of some of the best southern artisans in the South. I have been filling orders from my Etsy shop, most of them custom. I love custom work because my customers have the coolest ideas! Most of their ideas become permanent in my shop, too. I just got a request for a burlap pillow with a chevron pattern on it from my wonderful client, Cassidy. I was up for making something new with burlap. I drew out a chevron pattern on card stock and cut it out. Then, I took some fabric paint and stenciled the pattern onto the burlap and well, it turned out lovely! So, I cut more pillow covers and made a baby blue one and then, since my creativity was sparked, i saw a roll of painters tape and used that to stencil some big polka dots on a pillow cover in lime green.
So, needless to say, I love how they look and am so thankful for my customers and their creative, decorating energy!
Here's a look at how they turned out :
I'd love to hear what you think! Oh, and any creative ideas are encouraged.
Another tip, you can use cookie cutters as stencils, too!
Happy making, y'all!
