Halloween BOO Pillow with a Cricut Stencil

Did you know your cricut can cut stencils?  I had no idea, but when I was browsing Hobby Lobby I found these stencil sheets and decided to try and use it in my cricut machine.

I used the Songbird cartridge (it's my favorite font cartridge) and cut out the letters B O O!  
I was really surprised how well it cut it.  I used maximum pressure on the 
machine and chose to use the low speed.

I then took the stencil and applied it to my orange burlap.

I used the Black acrylic paint that DecoArt sent me in my goody box to paint the word onto my burlap.

It was so easy to paint.  Now it's time to sew around it and make it into a pillow.

I started by adding the fringe on each side of the pillow and sewed those on first before I 
sewed the top and bottom.

See the fringe?

Ready to stuff.......

Lookie at the finished pillow!

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great week!
