No Sew Supplies

Fabric - The easiest fabric to work with is a natural fabric like 100% cotton or linen.  We used Duck Cloth sometimes referred to as a utility fabric or canvas fabric.  If you use a drop cloth as your fabric, choose one that is described as a 100% cotton drop cloth suitable for making drapes.  There is a big difference in the types of fabric used when purchasing drop cloths.

Generally, you can make three pillow wraps with a yard of fabric.  You will have fabric left over depending on the width of your fabric.

Wash and dry your fabric to get out all the chemicals and sizing.  Next iron your fabric.

How To Heat Set DIY Paint Permanently To The Fabric

Wait an hour or two to set your paint. To set the DIY Paint permanently to your fabric, simply heat set it.  Use an iron with parchment paper.  Lay the parchment paper over the painted stencil image and iron.  Use the highest temperature setting as recommended for the fabric. 

How to Care for Your Pillow Wraps

100% Cotton – Wipe Clean with damp rag & mild soapy cleanser.  Then wipe with damp clean rag with only water to rinse. Let air dry.  If ironing is needed, use parchment paper over the painted image and iron as described above.
