Your Favorite Quote And A Marker And You Can Have A Bit Of Fluffy Inspiration!

I love these precious quote pillows. But they never seem to say just the right thing, and they are oh so expensive. Well not anymore! Now you can have an inspirational pillow that you did all by yourself.

We found the simple and easy steps thanks to Wit & Whistle, check out Amanda Wright’s instructions below!

some cardboard
a pencil
a letter stencil
a fabric marker


After choosing your quote, wrap your fabric over the cardboard to keep the marker from bleeding through and to keep the fabric stretched out smooth.

Use a pencil to stencil your quote onto the fabric. If you mess up the spacing you can erase the pencil lines and redo them. You can’t fix mistakes when you’re using the fabric marker, so don’t skip the pencil step.

Once you’ve penciled everything in, go at it with your fabric marker! I found it easiest to use the stencil for the outline of each letter, and then remove the stencil to fill the letters in.

Check the packaging for the fabric pen to see if anything needs to be done to set the ink. It’s not a bad idea to press it before you wash just to be safe!


Thank you Amanda for this amazing idea. I can’t wait to get started!
