Guest Post From Keeping It Simple

While I am getting used to having a newborn around some wonderful bloggers has stepped in to help out with some fabulous guest posts!  Don't worry I will be popping in here and there to give updates and of course do the Show Off Your Stuff Party!   We have a great line up for you all!  

Up first is Kaysi from Keeping It Simple



Hi everyone, I'm Kaysi from Keeping it Simple.  I love everything crafty.  But I especially love things that are simple, easy and quick to create!  

One of my all time favorite things to make are pillows, especially for the different seasons and holidays.  Now that spring is here, it's time to bust out the fun colors!

This is how I made them:
1) I got the butterflies from the dollar store, can you tell that I like them?  I cut the fabric into 18"x18", 18"x10" and 18"x16" pieces
2) I pinned the butterfly onto the fabric and sewed it on.
3) For the words, I got on my Silhouette Studio and rearranged the words to make a loop.  I did each letter individually.
4) I grouped all the letters together (CTRL+G) and made it smaller and mirrored the image.
5) I cut out the words out of white heat transfer vinyl from Expressions Vinyl
6) I ironed the words onto the fabric
7) I then sewed the three pieces of fabric to make the pillow cover
8) I stuffed a pillow in there.  
Here is a close up of the saying.  
I made the other one the same way.  I'll probably have them on different couches, not together.  
And here is the other saying.

Thanks for having me here today, good luck with your baby Fawnda!





I would love it if you followed along.
