Thankful Owl Pillow

I can't believe it is November!  I made this cute owl pillow out of a dish towel from Joann's - 70% off!
I love the fall owls - but the fabric was canvas-like - not good for doing dishes.... better for a pillow!  I cut a piece of burlap and cut the word "Thankful" on the Cricut in vinyl.
 I removed the letters, leaving the background for the stencil.  Then I stenciled black paint & removed the vinyl when it was dry.
 I love stenciling on burlap!!  It is so fun & easy!
 I cut the dish towel into a 17" square (it will fit at 16" pillow form).  I top-stitched the burlap piece in place.  Then just sewed the pillow.  I added some trim in the seam. 


  1. I LOVE this pillow!!! I'd love for you to share this at my link party Submarine Sunday. It's open until Friday @ 11:59pm. I hope you'll stop by!


  2. What a pretty little pillow! Love the blue chair and all the Fall decor. The owls make me happy! Thank you for sharing. Would love it if you would share this at my Make it Pretty Monday party at The Dedicated House which goes live at 8am CST on Monday. Hope to see you at the bash! Toodles, Kathryn @TheDedicatedHouse
