This past weekend, I did a fun little project to style out the Ikea hack built-in bench I just shared on Monday, I made faux indigo mudcloth pillows using a bleach pen! I love this super simple DIY! Of course they are not as beautiful of the authentic versions on Etsy, but at a tiny fraction of the cost, about $10 each, they give the look!
Step 1: cut the fabric to the size of the pillow plus 1/2" seam allowance, plus a little extra, if you're using linen for shrinkage.
Step 2: Use a white pencil to map your design
Step 3: draw design with bleach pen. NOTE: Don't forget to put down a barrier on your work surface, I used my cutting mat. Let set/dry. I left one of mine overnight.
Step 4: rinse and let dry. If you want a deeper white, repeat step 3.
Step 5: Iron and sew to back to make the pillow case.
That's it! So simple and so cute for only a total of $15! (I already had the inserts!)
PS I also made the indigo tie dye pillow using this kit and following the instructions they give.
