Nauty Nautical Freezer Paper Stencil Throw pillows

This was my first ever Freezer Paper Stencil transfer.
I thought it was a fun NAUTY little tutorial. :) 

I had found these pillows last week at Goodwill

They were only $1.99.  and to my surprise when I unzipped them I found this nice tag..

Yup Pottery Barn pillows for $1.99. .....SCORE...

I loved the color and the texture of the pillow with the nice little muslin edging, BUT
I thought they lacked UMPHHH!!! So I googled how to make a freezer paper stencil.
Basically you cut a piece of FREEZER Paper the size of your printer paper.
You put the paper in your printer..Only one sheet at a time with the dull side for
the print side.  When the ink is dry you take and exacto knife and cut out your pattern.
The pattern I chose was this cute little anchor from THE GRAPHICS FAIRY.

When you are done cutting out the pattern you iron the shiny side down onto your fabric.
Make sure to seal your edges. 

When it cools you paint in your stencil I used a mix of acrylic and fabric paint,
because my fabric paint was too dark and I didn't want a totally stark white with my acrylic.
When the paint is dry you pull off your stencil. Then when the paint is totally dry you lay a cloth over
your painted area and use the iron to set the paint. 

When its done..This is what you get. I now have 2 very nauty Nautical pillows.
It was easier than I thought and I am now wondering why I waited so long to try this.
I hope you enjoyed it. I hope you all have a wonderful and safe Memorial Day.
