Today I am going to share with you a project that I had a LOT of fun making. This easy diy fabric painted & patterned pillow case has been an idea of mine for a while. The one thing I could never really decide on was how I was going create the patterns. When I was given the opportunity to work with FrogTape ® Shape Tape™ I realized I was finally going to be able to create my designs!
What makes FrogTape’s Shape Tape so special? It is the patented Paint Block® technology that is in FrogTape®. Just what is that?
Paint Block® technology is a super absobent polymer that is applied to the edges of Shape Tape™. It reacts when in contact with paint and creates a gel that seals the edges of the paint so that you don’t get any bleed through. This makes FrogTape® the best painters tape ever! You get nothing but crisp, clean lines, without any bleed through.
To make this easy diy fabric painted pillow case you only need a few supplies.
- FrogTape® Shape Tape™
- Pillow Case
- Fabric Paint
- Foam brush
- credit card
After you have the pillow case placed on a clean flat surface, pre cut the tape so that your design will match up as needed. Make sure to place something thin like cardboard or plastic inside of the pillow case to prevent bleed through from the paint to the other side of the casing.
After you have the tape precut, go ahead and remove one side of the tape and adhere it to the pillow case.
After you are sure you have it in the correct spot, remove the second piece of backing and then use your credit card the make sure the tape is smooth and adhered to the case. Do this for the entire pillow case.
Once your entire pillow case has been taped and smoothed you can grab your fabric paint and foam brush.
Dab the paint and cover all of the open spots on the pillow case. For best results remove the tape after you have painted the pillow case. Do not allow to fully dry.
You should see beautiful clean and crisp lines on your pillow case. Allow to fully dry before using.
You should now have a beautifully designed pillow case! It goes perfectly with the toddlers decor in her room.
Making this patterned pillow case was easy with FrogTape® Shape Tape™. I am not sure how else I would have been able to make a fun patterend project without taking more time on a stencil or design. Having the pre-designed Shape Tape™ made all of the difference. Make sure to follow them on Pinterest and Twitter for more inspiration and projects to can create with Shape Tape™.
