Singing…Lay your head… on my pillow in my Al Green voice. Okay I’ll stop but speaking of pillows to lay on… check out this awesome pillow cover I made. Love it! I’m one of those people that love throw pillows. To me a sitting area or bed isn’t inviting if it doesn’t have a couple of pillows on it. The best part is that pillow covers are super easy to make or you can just buy a solid color pillow then add your graphic.
My Challenge To You
Today’s mindfulness craft challenge is to add an iron on symbol or quote to a throw pillow. Throw pillows are inviting so after you finish your pillow, I want you to think of all the wonderful emotions, people, and things you would like to invite into your life.
fabric | sewing machine & thread | iron-on vinyl (Cricut Brand) | Cricut Explore
So first thing first, the pillow, you can buy it or do like I did and DIY it. Then I cut on the feather design using my Cricut Explore machine. If you don’t have a Cricut Machine you can totally cut out you design using a pair of scissors or an X-acto knife. Next, I secured the design to the pillow using a very hot iron. And that is it. Easy, right?

That’s really cool. There are so many designs that would look great on a pillow like that.
I never thought of using an iron on. I’m getting ready to make pillows, but haven’t zero’d in on the design yet, I”m soaking fabric to take out some of the finish and color to look a little more funky, but I haven’t decided what to do. This is cool. I’m good with an xacto knife, don’t have cricut. Yea, for a new idea!
I think this would be fairy easy to do with an xacto knife. Just keep a simple design.
