This gives me ideas. My neice bought me 2 autumn pillows. I have tons of fabric. So now I will sew some pocket cases and paint away. Thank you for this idea. Now I can use my pillows instead of storing them until next fall. Love this idea.

They look GR8!
Just a couple of Notes:
Be sure to wash the fabric first, and Acrylic FABRIC Paint works great because it dries softer. One other thing I've experienced is IF your fabric is stretchy, like something with spandex, Stretch The Fabric WHILE Painting~ If the fabric stretches AFTER it's painted, the paint Will Crack.
Isn't PAINTING YOUR OWN DESIGN SO FUN!
