Primitive Stenciled Pillows???

I've got so many cool new stencils that I haven't used yet. During our house remodel, I gave the contractor a very important rule-NO wood gets thrown out until I sort through it. I kept tons of boards to make signs with, but just haven't been in the mood.
A few nights ago, I got the bright idea to stencil on muslin, then stitch it to a pillow!
Here are the results! I think they turned out pretty good and I didn't have to drill any holes or attach any wire. :)
I'll be listing them in my etsy shop very soon. Right now, I've got to go pick up my son from his friend's house and I'm honestly too tired to be doing the details of listing things on etsy tonight.
This vintage fabric was given to me by a friend. It was her aunts, who was around 100 when she died!

I've got lots of new primitive crafts finished and some new photos of my store. I'll not overload you all at once with them, but instead, I'll space it out over the next few days. Stay tuned for more!

I love them!
Where do you find your stencils?
I know what you mean about boards and scraps. I cabbage onto them at all my friends and families projects and I have never made one sign yet. I keep hoping I will and my DH thinks they'll make good kindling in the fire pit! LOL

I love those pillows! What a neat idea that is! I love signs and this just gives a whole new meaning to signs.
