Textile Designer Part II

For my next trick, I created striped pillows for the couch.

- I bought a yard of natural color flax and cut to pillow size.
- Then I taped off stripes
- I used a sponge brush to paint the stripes with watered down fabric paint.

* Be sure to sponge very lightly or the paint will bleed. Which it actually did some for me. I decided to use the back side which gave a nice water color effect.

- I used some leather scraps from work as the back of the pillows and sewed together. Voila! I am very happy with the results.
