To make my “Home Sweet Home” pillow, I made a simple 14×14 inch envelope pillow case. I ironed it so that it would make it easier to paint the letters on it. Print out the phrase that you want on your pillow in whatever font and size you want. Cut out the letters, position them where you want them on the pillow case, and trace around them. Then, paint the letters using some fabric paint (make sure that you put something underneath the layer of fabric you are painting because the paint will bleed through!) Let the paint dry completely, then iron the painted surface placing a layer of fabric (like a kitchen towel or a place mat) between the pillow case and the iron, this will help the paint set in. Place your pillow stuffing inside the pillow case case and you’re done!

Hi, Everyone! Today I want to show you my new “Home Sweet Home” pillow that I made this week! We’ve been in Maryland for a little over a month now and are settling in well and starting to get to know the area a little and are learning our way around! I finally unpacked my sewing machine and set up my craft room, and so it was time to make something for our new Home Sweet Home! Since both my husband and I have moved around a lot in our lives, having a house that really feels like home is really important to me because it’s what makes me feel happy, safe and comfortable in a new place. We’ve had lots of homes in our lives and each has been special in its own ways and given us lots of memories to look back on. As long as we are together, no matter where life takes us, it feels like home, and for that I am a very lucky girl! Here are some pictures of my new “Home Sweet Home” pillow and instructions for how to make your own…
