Make and Stencil a Pillow Using Freezer Paper

After flipping through my latest Crate & Barrel catalog, I decided to try and knock-off one of their gorgeous throw pillows. Their ampersand pillow was my favorite, so I thought I would give it a try. I found a few different tutorials here and there, and decided to try it for myself. I have a Cricut cutting machine, so it was a bit easier, but not necessary. Basically, you cut a design into your freezer paper, then iron it on your fabric. Then you use a stenciling brush to dab on your paint. The freezer paper adheres to the fabric when you iron it on, but pulls off without leaving any residue...very easy to do!
