I took the stencils off the canvas and then went over it again with a small paint brush. I used fabric paint so I can wash the pillow covers.
Then I thought it would be fun to add a little zip by adding ric rack to the edges of the pillow. I bought large ric rack at Joanne’s (they sell it by the yard). Each pillow took a little less than 2 yards. The first thing I did was sew the ric rack on the top of the number fabric. This holds it in place so it is even. You must start the ric rack off of the material (because it frays and this way the end part is in the seam).
(here’s the back on one…)
Chef Sadie Spencer has learned that in life, as well as in food, sour balances sweet. After returning to her deliciously charming hometown of Hershey with a young daughter in tow, Sadie has managed to rise from the ashes following the death of her husband, the passing of her mother, and the dissolution of her career as a TV chef. With the help and encouragement of her best friend, Jasper, she opens a restaurant and looks forward to savoring the sweet side of life. That is, until a handsome Russian entrepreneur arrives in town, apparently intent on opening up his own restaurant in direct competition to hers. Sadie becomes obsessed with honing the one skill she’s never had – creating desserts – to keep up with her adversary, and in the process, she finds a love that’s simply icing on the cake.
Cerella D. Sechrist makes her home in southern Pennsylvania, under an hour’s drive from the sweet life in Hershey. Growing up, her family annually celebrated an event called “Cookie Baking Day” where everyone gathered to bake over 80-dozen cookies, including one of their specialties: Peanut Blossoms topped with a Hershey’s kiss. It therefore stands to reason that her love of desserts is a genetic inheritance and not to be taken lightly. When dieting, she consoles herself with midnight viewings of the Food Network.

Anyway you would want to make and sell me the pillows you made numbers 1 through 6, but without the ruffle border, just with the number on it?
