What You'll Need

  • chisel-tip permanent marker
  • cardboard (roughly size of pillow cover)
  • ruler
  • crafts paintbrush
  • rubbing alcohol

1. Stick a piece of cardboard inside a pillow cover to keep it flat. Using the fat side of the marker’s chisel tip and a ruler, draw three horizontal lines and three vertical lines across the pillow case to divide it into 16 squares.

2. Using the thin side of the marker’s chisel tip and a ruler, draw diagonal lines across the pillow case, dividing each square into four triangles.

3. Dip a crafts paintbrush in rubbing alcohol and brush over each line to blur it. Let dry.
