Uudet päälliset / DIY Printed Pillow Covers











Useita vuosia sitten Ikeasta ostetut untuvatäytteiset isot tyynyt ovat edelleenkin kuin uusia, mutta samaan aikaan hankitut valkoiset päälliset alkoivat olla aikansa eläneet. Tyttären kanssa pistettiin pystyyn pieni painopaja - kerättiin ulkoa erilaisia lehtiä ja kukkia, joista minä päätin (lapsen mielestä tosi tylsästi) käyttää vain pihlajanlehtiä. Värivalintani kummastutti myös suuresti, koska olihan meillä käytettävissä vaikka mitä ihania kirkkaita värejä. No, lapsi teki omat ihanat askartelunsa siinä sivussa oman mielensä mukaan.

Levitin kankaanpainovärin pihlajanlehdelle siveltimellä ja painoin kuvion kankaalle. Peitin lehden paperinpalalla ja avitin painamista hieman telaamalla paperin päältä. Sitten annoin kankaan kuivua ja silitin kuviot pesunkestäviksi. Kankaina oli kahta eripaksuista valkaisematonta puuvillakangasta, joita löysin varastosta. Olen käyttänyt kankaita aikoinaan maalauspohjiin.

Lopuksi ompelin päälliset. Taakse jäi tyynyliinamainen aukko, ilman mitään kiinnitysmekanismia. Ihan napakasti pysyvät paikoillaan.

A quick summer diy. We used rowan leaves with black fabric paint and unbleached cotton. I applied the paint on the leaves with a small paintbrush and pressed the leaves on the fabric helping a bit with a small brayer. After the printing process the paint must be left to dry completely, and the prints ironed to make them waterproof.

I then sewed the covers as so called envelope covers - easy and quick, no fasteners like zippers or buttons needed there.

Tulipa niistä hienot, voisi itsekin kokeilla, löytyy painoväriä ja kangasta, ei puutu ku lehdet :)

Maija said...

Kiitos! Ei muuta kuin hommiin siis, lehtiäkin on nyt helposti saatavilla :)

Saija said...

Onpa ihanat! Kiva idea!

Maija said...

Kiitti, Saija :) Taitaa tuo uuden kodin luonnonläheinen sijainti inspiroida taas tällaisiin juttuihin <3

Hi! I really like what you've done here. Sadly I've found it through a Spanish blog that I don't think has credited you properly. Certainly replies to the comments don't make it clear that this is not the work of the blogger. I find these things very unfair, that's why I wanted to tell you. Congrats on YOUR good work

Any alternative to fabric paint? This is so beatiful.

Maija said...

Thank you, FOX :) You could use acrylic paint, but it might not be as durable, if washed.

Coralie Barrois said...

Very good idea, I will make it last week !

Maija said...

Thanks, Coralie! Have fun crafting!

Timia Lewis said...

Absolutely gorgeous! What are your plans for this fabric?

Maija said...

Thank you, Timia Lewis and pennedbyjenn.com!
There wasn't much left from the original fabric after I made the pillow covers. Or do you mean am I going to use the print?

Laura Flint said...

This is such a great technique! It looks amazing!

Alina said...

I absolutely love this idea. It's so elegant and you can easily make it unique to you but using things that you personally picked out :) Great idea x

Maija said...

Thank you, Alina! I'm really glad you like it, thanks for commenting :)

Angela Featherbe Morgan said...

I love your simple but beautiful work I suppose if you iron them you could use fabric pens too ( that was my mums idea)!

Ihanat tyynynpäälliset

Hi.
Love the idea but I don't understand a word :) and the google translator doesn't help...
What kind of paint and fabric did you used?
Thanks.

Maija said...

Hi Axun, Thanks for the comment. If you looked closer and scrolled down you would have noticed that I always write a summary in English as well.

I used Deka Permanent Deck fabric paint, but I'm sure any similar paint will do. You need to iron the pattern to make it water proof after it's dried completely.

I hope this helped, have a nice day!

I do see it now :) but hadn't noticed before.
Thanks for the reply. I'm about to start with a home reno so I will try your idea. Thanks for the tips.
