I've always been of the opinion that if a throw pillow isn't comfortable, it kind of defeats the purpose, don't you think? I mean, after all throw pillows are meant for family-movie-night-snuggles and afternoon naps on the sofa.
So, determined to craft the softest pillow on the planet, I set out to find the softest fabric. And just what did I find? An old soft white sheet. So what did I do? I hatched a plan and I turned that soft white sheet into a fabric canvas to make my own throw pillow covers.
Want to know how? Aww, shucks. I thought you'd never ask!
A soft white sheet that you can cut into for your fabric canvas
Black fabric paint (Look for Matte black)
A Magic eraser
Sewing Machine and Thread
First I measured my pillows and cut out enough fabric to make slip covers for each one. I used this tutorial to make my pillow covers. But before I began sewing, I "printed" my fabric.
Here's How: I used a magic eraser as a stamp for the triangle patterned fabric (use my tutorial here to show you how) and a cork as a stamp for the circle printed fabric using the same technique I used here.
Once I stamped my fabric, I allowed it to dry (about 30 minutes in the sun) then I began sewing my covers.
What were the results of the final experiment? Well, let's just say the super soft sheet made super snuggly pillows. See for yourself:
Perfect. Just what I wanted. Snuggly, soft, nap-worthy pillows.
