As part of my design team goody box for The Crafter’s Workshop, I received samples of Oly-Fun multi-purpose craft material. The first thing I thought of to use it for was to pretty up the very boring pillow sitting on my front porch!
I started by cutting two pieces of the white Oly-Fun a little bigger than my pillow. There is no grain so cutting is easy. Also, you can iron this material, just be sure to keep the temperature pretty low or it will melt.
I grabbed three stencils from The Crafter’s Workshop that had some pretty leaves (Leaf Branches, Herbarium and Pinecones), along with fall colors from the DecoArt Media misters, and started adding some gorgeous patterns to one of the pieces of material.
To bring more dimension to the pattern I had created with the sprays and stencils, I decided to use the free motion stitching attachment for my sewing machine to do a little doodling around some of the leaves. Some of the leaves I went around a few times; some just once. If you don’t have this attachment, or a sewing machine for that matter, no worries! A black Sharpie or fabric marker will do the trick and give you similar results with the doodling.
