Silhouette merry and bright glitter pillow

I have a thing for pillows, I have made quite a few with my Silhouette.  I use pillow covers so I can easily change them up with season and holiday.

Here is what I used to create this Merry and Bright Christmas Pillow:

  • Pillow Cover
  • Red Silver and Green glitter heat transfer vinyl
  • Black heat transfer vinyl
  • Silhouette
  • Iron
  • Tea towel

I used a few ornament designs from the SIlhouette store to design this pillow. I manipulated each one a bit to fit the size of my pillow, and added Merry and Bright to the center of one.  Once I had my design just right I mirrored the image and cut each ornament from glitter HTV.  It is so important to mirror any images and text when using HTV because you will be cutting from the back of the vinyl.

Once cut I weeded my pieces and laid them out on the pillow.

I laid a tea towel over the top and ironed on each ornament one at a time.  I pressed firmly for a minute or so to ensure a good stick. Then I went back and ironed on the black ornament tops.  Once everything was cool and adhered I turned the pillowcase inside out and and ironed from the back just a bit to help it really stay in place.

This pillow is perfect for the season and adds a fun touch to my living room.
