DIY Sharpie Pillow

Sabine Schmidt
by Sabine Schmidt
Here's an easy and inexpensive way to update a pillow, table cloth, t-shirt, etc. You need a sharpie and rubbing alcohol.
For my pillow case, I used a black sharpie. I love the indigo/purple/black color.
Gather your supplies: Rubbing alcohol, sharpie, medicine dropper or Q-tip.
For my design, I drew several lines.
I squeezed one or two drops of alcohol for each circle. More drops equal larger circles.
Let it dry completely. I ironed my pillow case to seal in the color.
It reminds me of water coloring.
This is such a quick and easy project. You can crank out several pillow cases in one day. Give it a try!
