Because the fabric is white AND I wanted to do something with all this fabric (our new house has no white...change in decor=left over fabric) I proceeded to 'coffee stain' it. I cut my fabric squares out...brewed a pot of coffee and let them sit over night in the sink. The next morning I washed and dried the squares, which by the way left the edges really rough...which I loved for this project. So don't be tempted to trim them off!
I visited Martha's website...you know Martha Stewart, Queen of Halloween? Copied her spooky lettering and just transferred them over to my squares. I then used a sharpie (way too impatient to use paint and let it dry) to color in the letters!
I then sewed the squares with the 'insides' together, no turning inside out here, so that the rough edges would be the edge of the pillow. I also used black thread for a pop of color!
That's how I did it! Super easy, Super cheap! EEK!
