DIY Valentine's His & Her Pillowcases

Feb 12, 2015

I've been having such a relaxing day today and am in an especially great mood, because.... we have a snow day! It was nice to have a bit of a slow moving morning, I slept in and then made a hearty "warm me up" breakfast of bacon, eggs and homemade blueberry muffins. Now onto today's Valentine's themed post...

I'm not one to decorate for every holiday and occasion, especially not for Valentine's Day, but I recently purchased so me fabric paint and was experimenting with it. My end result were these pretty cute His & Her Pillowcases. I've called them a Valentine's DIY because they're red and pink, but you could also switch up the colours and use them all year round. 
All you need for this project is red and white fabric paint or a mixture of craft and acrylic, which is what I used. I mixed red fabric paint with white acrylic paint to get the pink, then used a small sponge to make the dots. Next I just wrote out His & Hers using the fabric paint bottle which is shaped like a squirt tube. Just make sure you put something (I used a garbage bag) inside the pillowcase so the paint doesn't go through.

Somebody took note that a photo shoot was happening and had to make an appearance...

Please forgive the bright yellow paint. Since we're planning to do a major overhaul on the master in the near future I haven't bothered to paint it. But I desperately await the day that we can paint over the yellow with white or a light grey. I'll feel so much better then!

Stay tuned tomorrow for the second installation of the Simple Inspirations series. And as always, I would love to hear your comments on the blog, and if you see something you like, feel free to share it!
