She used straight pins and cut out letters for her stencil, but I just went my normal route and used vinyl.
To Make Your Own DIY Sharpie Pillow, You Will Need:
I already had this plain pillow, so I decided to just draw directly on it. I got it cheap so it didn’t bother me much if I screwed it up, and I figured I could always cover it. It’s obviously a bit trickier to write directly on a stuffed pillow as opposed to a cover, but patience and care go a long way. I also laid the pillow under a board and weighted it with books to flatten it as much as possible first.
First thing that I did was to create my design in Picmonkey. I used the BODONI XT font included in Picmonkey for “Let’s” and “Home”, and Ilana Bloom font that I got during a free deal at Fontbundles.net for “stay”.
After I had my design on a transparent background, I uploaded it to my Cricut Design Space to trace and cut. I grabbed a sheet of vinyl and cut it out for a stencil.
Next I laid the stencil on my pillow and carefully traced the letters in black sharpie. This was the most time consuming portion by far.
Once I had my outline, I grabbed a fat black Sharpie and started filling in my letters.
I was super happy with how my DIY Sharpie throw pillow turned out!!
