#429...fabric stamping

Last Christmas, our neighborhood holiday home tour passed through my house and I went crazy decorating (See here). This year, my decorating efforts were much more low-key. 

I like to change out my throw pillows on my bed, so I decided to try making a fabric stamped pillow emulating the shape of pine trees for this holiday season.
I cut a piece of foam board in the shape of a triangle to make my stamp. I used fabric textile paints in two colors of green that I applied with a brush to the foam triangle.
I pressed my stamp down onto a piece of linen, with even pressure to the back of the entire stamp.
The fabric paint I used required heated ironing to set once dry. It is then washable.
I sewed it into a large lumbar pillow.
I added an embroidered zig-zag border around the entire pillow in the style of the embroidered borders on John Robshaw pillows.
