Cutting Edge Stencils

You all may remember how much I love the Kelly Wearstler Imperial Trellis fabric that is rather pricey (for me a least!)...well you can imagine how excited I was when I came across Cutting Edge Stencils and saw that they had a large trellis stencil that looks just like my beloved fabric! Cutting Edge Stencils was kind enough to send me one to review and I am very impressed! 


I was originally going to stencil on drapery panels but then thought that perhaps I should start with something a little smaller in order to get some practice in. The people at Cutting Edge Stencils told me that they had heard of people using their stencils on fabric before, but the photos I saw on their site were all of walls. I wanted to play it safe...so, I started with a pillow.


Here is what the stencil looked like when it arrived. They also included a foam roller that I would definitely recommend you purchase as it didn't push the paint around but really places it where you want it. Does that makes sense? 




I laid out my fabric and taped the stencil down (I used the plastic wrap the stencil came in to protect my floors). Load up the roller and get to it! Just go slowly so that the stencil doesn't move around. Actually while I was doing this the stencil did move a bit and you couldn't even tell after it was finished, so don't stress if it does move some. 


Peel up the stencil and let your fabric dry. I washed my stencil off in the sink and hung it in the closet by a skirt hanger to store it. 




Didn't it turn out GREAT! I am so pleased with how well the stencil worked on the fabric. 




Here is a finished pillow.


I would most certainly suggest ya'll head over to Cutting Edge Stencils and check out all their great products. This was a really easy project and I think it looks very similar to the original fabric...plus, you get to choose your own colors! 


Now I'm just trying to figure out what walls in the condo to try the stencil on next!!

Did you just use normal fabric paint for this? I thought at first you were doing a pillow case but was it just a piece of fabric and you sewed the pillow after? I ask because I'm curious if it was difficult to sew through the fabric with the paint on it. It looks absolutely fantastic.
