Tiffany here with an off the page decor project using the lovely Felicity Jane digital kits. For this project I created the sweetest little throw pillow from the digital papers from the Megan, Brooke, and Alexis digital kits.
I began by choosing my papers. I chose four, one from the Megan kit, one from Brooke and two from Alexis. You can definitely choose more, but I personally like how these four patterns look together. I also pulled out the lovely buttons from the Hope kit (as well as the embroidered hearts) in case I wanted to use them to embellish the pillow.
To prep for printing, I pulled out some white cotton linen and sheets of iron-on adhesive to make my own printable fabric. You can easily buy printable fabric online or in store, but as I didn't have any on hand, I had to create my own. I simply fused the linen onto the iron-on adhesive and made sure each sheet was 8.5x11, so that it could easily fit into my printer.
Don't be alarmed if your sheets come out with dark ink stains on the edges. Most at home printers aren't made to print on fabric, so sometimes—like it did on mine—the rollers leave excess ink on the edges of the sheets. But once I had the patterns printed, I trimmed each sheet down into four 4x4 squares, which got rid of those inky bits and left me with clean fabric squares.
When I had my squares all cut out, I began to play around with my arrangement. I spent quite a bit of time arranging my quilt and seeing where I might potentially want to embellish. Once I found an arrangement I liked, I began sewing.
Now since I printed off these squares on DIY fabric sheets, I still had the paper backing on each of them. Depending on your machine, you can remove the paper backing and sew easily through the plastic-like adhesive backing just fine. Or, you can adhere each square onto some white linen, so that both sides of your squares are fabric, making them easier to sew through. I left my squares as is and sewed through the adhesive backing, but with a little bit of difficulty.
But it was all fine in the end. Once I had my little quilt, I sewed on a few of the buttons from the Hope kit. I used two of the white flower buttons and two of the pink flower buttons. I sewed them where the corners of the fabric squares met. I was going to add an embroidered heart in the center, but decided against it last minute as I didn't think the color worked very well.
Once all of the embellishing was done, I cut down a light pink linen to size, faced the two pieces together, and proceeded to sew the two to create a little pillow case. I made sure to leave a small opening in the case, so that I could inside-out the fabric and then stuff the case with some filler.
When properly stuffed, I hand-stitched the small opening shut and my sweet little Felicity Jane pillow is complete! I really hope you enjoyed how this pillow came together. I hope this gave you an idea on how versatile the digital kits are. There's so much you can create with them, it's quite wonderful!
