When Amanda from Wit & Whistle came across a pretty linen pillow with the lyrics to “You Are My Sunshine” printed on it at Vivaterra, she was drawn to it.  There were two things that she wasn’t too keen on though:  the choice of words (cute, but not her favorite) and the price.  ($159 for a throw pillow??)  Instead she made her own version, recreating the look for a whole lot less.  I love the quote she chose.  In fact, I think I like her DIY pillow better than it designer counterpart!  [how to make a stenciled quote pillow]

Project estimate:

  • Pillow cover or fabric, on hand or $1 and up
  • Cardboard, on hand
  • Pencil, on hand
  • Letter stencil, on hand or $1 and up
  • Fabric marker, about $3

Total:  about $3 and up
