My parents just sold their business and their house! They aren’t sure what’s next but whatever they choose to do it will involve some kind of traveling, probably in an RV or motor home. My folks love to drive, travel and see the world. And my mom LOVE her felt pillow case to cuddle with in the car.
So instead of some random pillow case I decided to make her something to remind her of all of us while they travel around!
Plaid Crafts sent me the most amazing bag of goodies from their Martha Stewart collection to create with for mothers day this year! I have a project for my Mother in law to share tomorrow as well! It was an inspiring bag and I already used some of it last week for my teacher appreciation gift! I already have grand plans for the rest as well!
The supplies were super easy! A flannel pillow case, Martha Stewart paint, with the sponge applicator top and alphabet stencils or a vinyl cutter…
I had a great time picking out fonts for everyone! I included my parents, siblings, spouses and all the CURRENT grandkids on the pillowcase!
I created it in photoshop first…
then I laid out a plan in my silhouette studio for cutting out all the names!!!
I slid a foam board inside the pillow first for a work surface. Then I put the names onto the pillow (see the blank spot? I was saving it for my unborn neice…. then the day after I “finished” the pillow I woke up and realized I forgot one of the already HERE ON EARTH grandbabies! I am a total dork!)
these applicators are AMAZING!!! They attach right onto the paint! And they clean up like a breeze.
I did mess up ONE thing, Kimber was supposed to be pink and Reece was supposed to be red! GAH! I’m still upset about it!
For the big FAMILY on the end I used the metallic silver paint! It’s LOOOOOVELY!!!! It has this gorgeous glimmer and I love it!
Peel off the vinyl…
ANNNNNNDDDD it’s done- and GORGEOUS! I’m tickled and my mom is going to LOVE it! Now to find a space for my unborn (and probably the last) grandbaby!
