Hi friends! I thought it would be fun to share a small series of projects I am making for my new home. I will call the series "Nesting". Each project will be something that I was already going to make for our home. Some may be a little technical, most will be super easy (like this one). All of them will be items that I plan to keep and use for a long time that match the style of our new space.
I've been loving black and white accents for home decor. Obsessed is probably the right word, actually. This week I took some time to hand print a couple simple patterns. They were so easy to mask, stamp, paint and stitch up! All three of these patterns were made with a base of white canvas and black fabric paint (I like Tulip Soft Fabric Paint—it's less stiff and perfect for textiles). I made the polka dot print with a round foam stamp (similar technique). The other two prints were made with masking tape made into shapes and painted over with a foam brush (similar technique). I had so much fun making these and can't wait make more. I bought some foam letter stamps, so I see some song lyric pillows in our near future. Have you ever painted or printed your own pillows? I love how it's so quick and easy (and inexpensive) to personalize a living room! xoxo. Elsie
PS. Emma's boyfriend adopted this puppy this week... isn't he adorable? He's a lab + shar pei mix.
