Easter pillows

To celebrate Easter, I made a few bunny pillows yesterday.

This was a really simple project and only took a few minutes to complete.

First, I found this bunny silhouette from The Graphics Fairy {here}.  The image was from an old typography book. The original image was in black in white, so I went into Photoshop elements, lassoed the black image and swapped out the color with some spring colors.  I also enlarged the image so it was just about 11 inches wide.

Next, print out the image on transparent t-shirt transfer paper with your ink jet printer.  I did several versions of the bunny ---- black, pink, purple, & turquoise.

Cut the bunny out {leave about 1/8" margin, anything else will not blend as nicely in to the pillow} and position on your fabric.

Follow the transfer instructions and press the image down.  Once the transfer has cooled down, pull up the paper backing to reveal your image.

Next I stuffed my pillow cover and voila!  Here is one of my new bunny pillows!

Thanks for stopping by today!
