Hello This Silly Girls Life readers!! This is Shonee from Hawthorne and Main! I have been loving all of the rustic home decor that has been floating around Pinterest lately!! Today I am going to show you how simple these grain sack pillows are to make!

 DIY Grain Sack Pillows

 

Supplies:
-1 Drop cloth
– 1.5 inch painter tape
– scissors
-1 bag poly fill
-sewing machine
I found this spray paint at Joann.  I had never heard of it before this project, but I love it!!
To start, cut out one front and one back for your pillow out of the drop cloth. I love this fabric because it is cheap and the color is great.  If your drop cloth is new I would recommend washing and drying before you start this project.   I made mine 20 inches by 20 inches.  Then using the painters tape mark off a section in the middle of the fabric that is about 1.5-2.0 inches wide. See image 2 below.
Take it outside and gently spray a light coat of the fabric paint.  Be sure to mask off the portion of the pillow that you don’t want to get any paint on.  This is spray paint so there will be some over spray.  I just laid out some news papers.  See image 3 below.
After the first stripe is done, and the paint is dry, use the making tape to make the two smaller outer lines.  See below in picture 4.  Again mask off the areas you don’t want any paint on.

 

To sew these pillows, put right sides facing and sew all the way around leaving one small section open, it only needs to be as big as your fist.  After you are done sewing turn the entire pillow right side out.  Use the poly fill to stuff the pillow.  After it is filled to your liking, use a needle and tread to hand sew the small opening shut.   Done.

I love how these turned out.  I cannot wait to see what else I can paint with this stuff.  I love this new paint!!

What would you paint with it!?

  5. I love these, gives me tons of great ideas, is the fabric drop cloth that you buy at a Lowe’s or Home Depot in the paint section? I am really curious to know.
