DIY Pillow Case : Arrows and Doilies


Hello, my friends!

How are you today? I hope you’re doing good. Much to my dismay, I should have posted this weeks ago yet I never  came around to doing it. 🙂


  • fabric paint/ textile paint
  • paper doily
  • masking tape
  • brush
  • scissors
  • cardboard
  • pencil
  • ruler
  • pillowcases / fabric ( well, I had to sew new ones from scratch)

oooooookkkkaaaayyyy.. 🙂


I tried fitting the pillow cases first to look where I’d like to print my design


I used the paper doilies as stencil. Paper Doilies are more convenient and practical since it’s cheaper and you can just throw it away after use.


managed it with minimal blotting! HURRAH!

then we come to the arrows:


you just need to stencil using your pencil and ruler or you can print something form the computer and make a stencil out of it. I pretty much used some free hand here.


The masking tape will help you paint within the lines you have drawn. The process is kinda mundane but I just have to suck it up and finish it haha.

so here it is, lines still a wee bit crooked, pretty much screwed it haha but you’ll get it.


P.S. Put newspapers or plastic underneath it to protect your floors. TRUST ME ON THIS! I got into a little accident and tripped into the paint and it “graced” my floor with it’s royal stubborness. HAHA Took me forever to brush the paint off.

AND ALSO, put a cardboard inside the pillowcases while painting so that the paint won’t go through the other side. ^_^

Have fun!
