To add to our Christmas decor, I wanted to make some pillow covers for the living room. I had brown homespun covers on for fall but they just didn't quite work with the Christmas decorations. I made 2 'five-minute pillow covers' out of Osnaburg fabric that I had in my stash. After deciding what I wanted to say, I played around with different fonts and sizes on my Cricut.
I decided on the first line from "Hark the Herald Angels Sing", which is one of my favorite Christmas hymns.
I used Quarter Note for 'Glory' and 'Sing' and welded the letters together on my Gypsy before I cut them out. Then I used Doodletype for the rest of the words.
Using the same process as my Thanksgiving banner, I mixed up 2 shades of brown paint and pounced it on to the pillow cover with a foam brush. (This time I made sure to put some thick cardboard on the inside so the paint wouldn't bleed through to the back.)
I wanted to make 'Glory' and 'Sing' stand out so I used the Quarter Note cartridge to cut them out and then stenciled them with a Robin's Egg blue color. They still needed a little something when they were done so I outlined them with the brown paint and a very, very fine paintbrush.
