[DIY] Dec. 25 Canvas Pillow

It’s non stop Christmas around here. Miss P and I are having a blast. I’ve been working on so many decor projects that I’ve totally slacked on my homemade gifts. Anybody else? Luckily today’s project is so quick and easy that it takes no time to whip up. If you follow me on Instagram then you’ve seen a sneak peek of this canvas pillow. Well today, I’m going to show you how to make one of your own!

I have been wanting to try out some heat transfer paper for the longest time now. Thanks to the black friday deal I was able to nab some at a decent price. When it arrived I took it out of the box right away and immediately got started on this pillow!

Supplies:

1/4 y. canvas fabric and coordinating thread  (The pillow measures only 12×12 so it doesn’t take up much fabric at all.)

scissors

pillow stuffing

black heat transfer material

stencil

Start by cutting two squares approximately 12×12 in. Since you aren’t fitting a pillow form, the size can be as big or as small as you’d like, just be sure to cut your squares the same size.

Cut and place your heat transfer material onto fabric according to your package directions.

Once the transfer has been ironed on, you are ready to sew. With right sides facing together, sew edges leaving a small gap at the bottom to stuff. After the pillow is stuffed you can either do a blind stitch to close your gap or use your sewing machine. I used my sewing machine.

That’s it! Now you have a lovely holiday pillow to adorn your sofa with! So festive right?
