How to Make It

  1. Start with a throw pillow with a removable, white cover (or use white pillowcases or shams for a bed ensemble).
  2. Following the manufacturer's instructions, dye the pillow cover and a test swatch the desired color using fabric dye.
  3. To create the pattern, choose a stamp with a simple design that looks like a line drawing.
  4. Apply gel bleach to the stamp using a foam brush, and stamp the dyed fabric where you want to place the design; test this process on the test fabric.
  5. Let the bleach lighten the fabric color to the desired effect, and then wash it out under cold running water.
