hello there. i have a fun little Do-It-Yourself project to share today! i did this project with my brother, Doren, in an afternoon. We had fun! ♥
We used our new Silhouette SD cutter. It's a really great tool for cutting paper, vinyl and heat transfers (that's what we used). Doren used it to make a bunch of stuff, actually! Next, I want to make temporary tattoos and I am going to try to make some stuff for my wedding too.
Other supplies needed: A vintage velvet pillow, a lightly patterned cotton fabric, buttons and spray adhesive.
Step One: Create your design in the software that comes with the cutter. It's easy to use. Step Two: Use the silhouette cutter to create your design.
Step Three: Peel the unwanted part of the heat transfer material off of the plastic so that only the letters (or design) remain.
Step Four: Place the heat transfer sheet on the fabric you want to transfer it to. It should be facing down (so that the words are *not* backwards). Iron and peel the plastic off.
Ta-Da! Your transfer is complete. (thanks, Doren!)
Step Five: Trim the excess fabric around the text and use spray adhesive to adhere it to a vintage velvet pillow.
Step Six: Stitch buttons and felt embellishments around the fabric piece to create a cute border and hide the edges.
There you have it! A cute and simple personalized pillow. XXO! elsie
