This week’s challenge store was The Land of Nod which I was super excited about.  Designing with my kids in mind is one of my favorite ways to decorate.  I chose to appropriate these lettered pillow covers.materials-for-personlized-initial-pillowFor this project, I used a white pillowcase, acrylic paints and fabric medium.sketching-letters-on-pillowcaseAfter drawing the letters lightly with pencil, I mixed up some fabric paint.mixing-acrylic-paint-to-make-fabric-paintMy particular fabric medium calls for two parts acrylic paint to one part fabric medium.  I just recently started experimenting with mixing my own fabric paints and I am completely hooked!  I will definitely be keeping some fabric medium in my crafting arsenal from now on.inserting-paper-between-pillowcaseBefore you start painting, make sure to put something in between your pillow cover so the paints won’t bleed through.  This is always a necessary step when using fabric paint otherwise the paint will act as a glue and hold both sides of your pillow cover together.painting-in-letters-on-pillowcaseThen I painted in the letters.  I say it all the time here it is again: when you want to paint straight lines, drag down.  I picked this tip up in one of my many undergrad art courses and it has served me well ever since.bright-inital-pillowcaseI chose my kids initials, a plus sign, and my own initial.  This font is reminiscent of those neon lettered signs to me.  It’s whimsical, fun and a totally perfect addition to a play room or kids room.personlized-monogram-pillow-tutorialcustom-initial-pillowpersonlized-initial-pillowcaseIf you’re a The Land of Nod lover like myself, be sure to check out some of these other adapted projects.Inspired DIYs By Land of Nod

Some of these projects I seriously considered doing myself so it was extra fun seeing how everyone’s projects panned out this month.  Next month we’re adapting another favorite store of mine, CB2!
