When I received my Pottery Barn catalog I instantly fell in love with the butterfly pillow on the cover. I have a chandelier wall sticker in my bedroom that has birds and butterfly's and I knew that it would fit perfectly in my bedroom.
I use t-shirt transfers all of the time but they can be extremely costly, so I wanted to try the method of printing directly on the fabric I got most of my tips right HERE. Being that these are throw pillows I didn't buy the bubble jet set, these shouldn't get to much wear and tear. I love how they turned out, unfortunately, I was limited by size because of my printer but I will definitely use this method again.
For the fabric I just used my off-white flannel (yes the same stuff I used for my nook cover). I love how it gives it a canvas look. At first I made the pillow with several butterfly's (I used a t-shirt transfer) and then. I decided I would add more pillows. So I made 2 flowers, a bird, and a much larger butterfly. I got all of my images from The Graphics Fairy with the exception of the first pillow (I can't remember where I got it from).
Over all extremely pleased with this project, but I definitely need to make another bird pillow.
