For today, I am in love with all things burlap. Especially burlap pillows! There are lots of ideas for them all over Pintrest, like this one above. Many of these projects begin with plain burlap and a stencil.
I bought this white burlap from Walmart and an equestrian stencil from Hobby Lobby. It was easy to use black craft paint and a foam brush to apply the motif.
I used an old wool sweater for the base of my pillow cover, with the burlap as the embellishment. I robbed an old pillow form from my linen closet and trimmed the sweater into a square. Then I cut the burlap square to size within it.
I stitched the burlap to the sweater around the edges with a zig-zag stitch, leaving the loose ends of the burlap hanging out for a rustic look. Then I put the right sides of the wool fabric together, and stitched around the edge leaving an opening to insert the pillow form. Turned right side out, the open edge was then top stitched shut.
My pillow looks great on my leather chair. I just might be in love with ponies for a while…..
