Easy Sharpie Pen Cushion

30 Minutes
New cushions were needed for my front veranda.The old ones were faded and not very inviting to any guests that might like to take a seat.
Sometimes projects don't need to be over thought... less is more!
So with a piece of unbleached muslin, a sharpie pen, light box and a word print-out I created this 'Welcome' cushion to greet my guests.
Welcoming front porch decor.
Unbleached Muslin (Calico) is thin enough to see through on a light box.
Print your message and using a Sharpie pen, trace the lettering directly onto your fabric. Sew up the sides of your cover and insert cushion.

    Um, I feel a bit stupid asking, but what is a light box? Can I make one myself or do I need to purchase it somewhere? The pillow is gorgeous!
