I love this flower pillow!
My fancy beaded denim pillows!
1 yard heavy cotton
1 yard heavy denim
1/3 cup seed beads per pillow
Cut two pieces of fabric 19″ x 19″
Pin and stitch together using 1/2″ seam allowance and leaving a 5″ long hole
Clip the corners at an angle
Turn right side out and press flat
Spray the stencil with a light coating of spray adhesive
Center it on the pillow
Fill the stencil with a generous amount of E-6000 Fabri-Fuse
Remove the stencil and sprinkle the beads on the Fabri-Fuse
*gently press down the beads if you need to
Repeat with the other areas of the stencil
Add a coating of clear acrylic IF you feel you didn’t use enough glue
*This will insure that you don’t lose any beads
For larger, more intricate stencils stick your stencil to the fabric
Squirt a generous amount of glue along the side of the stencil
Spread the glue with a piece of cardboard like a squeegee
Remove the stencil
Sprinkle the beads and let dry overnight
