Instructions

1. Mix crafts paint with fabric medium, following the package directions.

2. To make the spotted pattern on the far left and far right pillows, use a small angled paintbrush to paint varying-size splotches on a square pillow cover. 

3. To make the mountain pattern on the middle pillow, paint zigzag lines freehand across the pillow cover using a large artist’s paintbrush. Let dry for 24 hours. Turn the pillow covers over, paint side down, and iron to set the paint.
