freezer paper stencil pillows

Papa B's extended family does a gift exchange every year. Everyone draws a name and they buy a gift for that person only. I got one of Papa B's aunts. I had a hard time coming up with an idea for her. I finally settled on decorative throw pillows. I figured the safest way to make some that would match her decorating style was to make them seasonal versus everyday.

I used my Cricut, fabric paints, freezer paper, cotton fabric, and throw pillow inserts to make these. The Cricut was able to cut the freezer paper easily and saved me a bunch of agony trying to design and cut out my own images. I made the pillow cases first and then painted them. They're the kind that overlap in the back.
