This is the LAST week of my pediatric rotation! So hard to believe that six weeks have flown by! I'm very excited to be able to move home again, but I will also miss my rotation. The doctor I've been studying under is wonderful! So much so, that I got peed on today and I just laughed! Six weeks ago if a kid peed on me, the last thing I would have done would be to laugh.
While I've been back and forth between Chattanooga and Nashville I haven't really had time to work on big furniture projects, so I've been tackling small craft projects. After I got my amazing pillowcase from Bonnie I decided to update the rest of my pillows.
First I got a fun stencil from Michaels and painted a piece of fabric. I made the pillow cases to be 18x18.
I then mixed acrylic paint with a little bit of water until it was pancake batter consistency. Here is the fabric half-way stenciled.
I also used painter's tape and acrylic paint to make a chevron print, but it was a last minute decision and I didn't take any photos. The last pillow I made was a large birdie to implement the birds from Bonnie's pillowcase. Here they are in their new home!
Here is what the pillows looked like before:
You can tell my hubby uses Bonnie's pillowcase - it's all wrinkly!
The green chevron is kind of worn and patchy looking, but I don't mind! I also need to add a turquoise stitching to the birdie.
This was my FIRST sewing project! LOL! So my pillow cases are a little ghetto and will probably be switched out eventually, but I had fun making them!
Hope you all have a great week!
