Easy Peasy Pillow Redo

It's down to the last minute sprucing up for Easter weekend and time to switch out some cushions in the family room.  Out go the heavy fabrics and winter colours and in come the cottons and off whites.

Storage is a huge issue in this old house and I prefer to add a cover to an existing pillow.  I bought a neckroll cover in a light beige cotton for $3.99 at Oxford Mills.  I couldn't make one for that and it fit a roll pillow that I already had.

I downloaded an image of a wild bunny from The Graphics Fairy and printed it out on a laser printer.  You need an ink based laser printer or a photocopy to do this.  Instead of using the Citrasolv transfer method, I used a clear Chartpak blender pen.  You can buy these at art supply stores or online for under $10.   To see how to do transfers click Here.

In under 10 minutes I had that dark pillow looking like this. ~

It's a touch of spring on an otherwise dark chair. ~

This one is so quick and easy to do!  

I'm sharing the bunny with:
