Happy Star Wars Day! What? You didn't know it was Star Wars Day? Sheesh what kind of rock do you live under? (I didn't know until people talked about it online either)
In honor of Star Wars Day I thought I'd share these super easy, super awesome pillow cases I made for my oldest son's room. He wanted a Star Wars themed room and I compromised and said maybe we'd just get some Star Wars accessories that we could easily trade out when he changed his mind later. We're not anywhere close to being done with his room (they moved out of living together into their own rooms a few months ago) but doing little by little.
I made these Star Wars pillow cases using this freezer stencil method (and oh man is it easy and addictive!) and some stencils for pumpkin carving I found online. There are TONS of those pumpkin carving stencils in every theme imaginable so I'm sure I'll be asked to do some Harry Potter ones soon enough!
Basically you iron your shirt/pillowcase whatever, print out your design on freezer paper , cut out with an exacto knife, iron the pattern on shiny side down with the DRY setting of your iron, paint with fabric paint (with cardboard under the fabric), lift off freezer paper when dry, heat set with the iron, and there you go!
Some in progress pictures ( the circles at the bottom of the pic on the right were supposed to have white in the middle but I messed up so made them all black - he won't notice ;)
And the finished product!
