Mother's Day will be here before you know it, so it's time to start planning a gift.  Though I made this for Mother's Day, you can tailor it to fit any design, decor or occasion!

You will need:

-  Fabric - I used a canvas for this pillow
-  Stencils - I bought the bird stencils and the letter stencils at Hobby Lobby
-  Black fabric paint
-  Stencil brush
-  Hot glue
-  Stuffing/fiberfill

Here is the video tutorial:

1.  Cut your fabric to the size you want your pillow to be.  
2.  Using your stencil and fabric paint, stencil the bird on one of the pieces of fabric.  Set aside to dry.
3.  Stencil MOM on the other piece of fabric - letting it dry between letters.
4.  When the paint has dried, put the pieces together, facing each other.
5.  Hot glue the pieces together, making sure you leave an opening at the bottom of the pillow - large enough to fit your hand through.  TIP:  When you are hot gluing, glue near the edge, but not right at the end.  Use small lines of glue, so it doesn't harden before you attach the two pieces together.  
6.  Allow to cool.  
7.  Through the opening you left at the bottom of the pillow, turn the pillow right side out.
8.  Stuff the pillow with your stuffing.  I like to put the stuffing in the corners first, to make sure they get properly stuffed.
9.  Turn the edges of the openings in and glue the opening shut.  Allow to cool.

That's it!  Now you have a designer pillow for very little cost!  Perfect for Mother's Day or just to decorate your home!  Think of the fun pillows you can make for girls rooms or  boys rooms!!
