Go over for a visit and see what every one is up to.

On the way home from swimming last week I stopped at GoodWill and found this.

I used freezer paper to make a stencil, ironed it onto the pillow case, painted on the fleur de lis with black fabric paint.  I Lurve It!

It adds a bit of cozy comfort to the rocker on the porch.

You can find directions for the freezer paper stencil here.  I can think of lots of fun things to do with this idea.  Hopefully things I’ll do this coming week.


  1. You 'down south' girls are just TOO crafty!!!!
    Precious pillow....but, of course, would be even cuter with an LSU stencil!!!!

  2. Wouldn't it though. I'm on the look out for a pillow I can use for LSU.

  3. Oh that's cute!


  4. Nice and sweet.
    Happy MET Monday Deborah (my only sisters name) and my BFF...

  5. Super cute. Lovin all the good stuff from Met Monday! The Freezer paper stencil is TDF!

  6. Love it. And the fluer de lis looks perfect with that nova check plaid! Great idea! Thanks for the inspiration!
