Good Night, Bonne Nuit freezer paper stenciled pillowcases

Knowing that our cousin was a big fan of beautiful, handmade things (as clearly evidenced by her lovely wedding), I thought I'd continue the pillowcase decorating tradition and make her a set of "Good Night, Bonne Nuit" pillowcases:

These pillowcases were inspired by the ones that I saw on Skunkboy Blog.  The originals looked so airy and whimsical that I had to try making similar looking ones using the freezer paper stencil technique.  Here's a photo of me stenciling the "good night" pillow:

These were my most difficult stenciling project yet because the branches and leaves were so narrow and took a lot of time to carefully cut out.  Although my pillows don't have quite as much quirky detail as the originals, they still look pretty darn cute.

Here are some closeup shots:  (Sorry for the wrinkles.  I hate ironing and didn't even think to iron them first.)

Hopefully they'll bring sweet dreams and rest  to the bride and groom.

Happy Tuesday, friends!
