Looking through a Pottery Barn magazine recently I became inspired.... see the nest pillow sitting on the coach in the magazine photo below.
$49 not being in our budget...a DIY version was a better option for me....
.....starting with $1 white clearance fabric
....tea dye was added to obtain the cream color I wanted (this step can be eliminated if you have the fabric color you like to start with).
...after letting the fabric dry you'll need some waxed freezer paper.
Cut a piece of fabric and freezer paper just slightly smaller than a sheet of your printer paper 8 1/2" X 11". Iron the fabric to the waxed side of the freezer paper.
....adding a little tape @ the top and bottom of the fabric making sure it will not slip while printing.
Print your image onto the fabric, making sure the fabric side is facing down when running it through your printer.(previously I created my text and added a free clip art nest).
....peel the waxed freezer paper off of the fabric....
...add fusible web to the fabric and adhere it to your pillow fabric.
Bring out your sewing machine and zigzag stitching around edges followed by sewing the side seams of the pillow.
....stuff the pillow with batting...and sew the opening shut.
....I made two of these pillows @ a low cost of $1.99 for two pillows :)
...now you can sit back and enjoy your work :)
