Sometimes, being a DIY blogger is the most awesomest thing in the world. One of those times is now, because I received package stuffed with brand spankin' new Mod-podge products. If this blog is any indicator (and it is) I go through Mod-podge like water. It is one of the best crafting tools in my very messy supplies closet.
Look at all these goodies!
Pretty sure I salivated like a puppy waiting for food when I unpacked all this goodness.
I am most excited about the photo-to-fabric transfer medium. With all the cool iPhone photography apps, I have tons of fly photos in my archive that I want to display. I decided to take one of my instagram pictures and transfer it onto a pillow.
Hence, the post title: INSTAPILLOW!
The transfer medium was unbelievably easy to use and worked like a dream. Kudos Mod-podge. Kudos.
2. Print out of a photograph.
3. Pillow from Bed, Bath & Beyond.
1. Cover the print out with a thick layer of transfer medium. Don't be frugal, you want the medium to be think enough so that you can no longer see the photo under it.
Place the photo face down on the pillow in your desired position. Press down to make sure the whole surface of the photo is in contact with the fabric.
Let dry for 24 hours.
Use a soaking wet washcloth to remove the paper from the pillow.
(or maybe science)
Snaps for apartment crafting.
I have to say, I'm super impressed at the quality of the transfer. I chose a very vivid image and the colors remained bright. I think I might embellish this pillow a bit with embroidery floss or notions. Ya digggg?
