2014 Handmade Gift Roundup: Stenciled Pillow

Now that Christmas is over, I can finally post the handmade gifts I made this year. Today I'm sharing the gift I made for my book loving, library science degree holding - sister in law.

I was inspired by this pin, which doesn't appear to link to the pillow :(. 
I used the same freezer paper stencil technique as I did for the "Jingle All The Way" pillow and the pillow case is from Ikea. I had to touch up the letters with a fabric paint pen to get the super smooth edges I wanted. 

I used painters tape to hold the stencil in place while ironing it to the pillow. 

After stenciling, I let it dry overnight. 

This picture was taken after touching it up with the fabric paint pen. I wish I had taken one of the not so perfect version so you could see the difference. It was minimal but it bothered me.

Tomorrow I'll share the crafty gift I whipped up for my son's teacher.
