I can’t find the photo I saw that inspired me, but making this pillow for my porch bench hasn’t left my mind since I saw it. It was a simple and inexpensive project and I am really happy with how it turned out!
I bought 1 yard of canvas at Hobby Lobby, with my coupon, it wound up being around $6. I folded it in half lengthwise and ironed the whole thing smooth. I got out lettering stencils that I already had, some gray paint (the same Chelsea Gray I used to paint my bedroom furniture) and some fuseable hemming tape.
From there, I was all pretty simple. I stenciled the word “thankful”, I used the Heat n Bond to close all sides but one, stuffed it with the insides from a bed pillow I had recently replaced. Once it was stuffed, I pinned the final sides with a final strip of Heat n Bond in the middle & ironed my pillow closed.
