What you Need

  • 18 X 38 piece of black fabric
  • 12×12 piece of Heat Transfer Vinyl in gold
  • Cutting Machine like Cricut Explore
  • Dumbledore Quote Image – get the FREE DESIGN here (oops I caught the typo after posting this and doing a whole live video tutorial yikes! The design is spelled correctly and I’ll update pictures when I can make a new pillow and take more pictures)

What To Do

  1.  Cut the fabric. For a 17″ pillow you need a piece of fabric 17X38 inches big. For other sized pillows you need the fabric to be the size of the pillow side (in my case 17″) by the side times 2 plus 4 more inches. So for mine it was 17″ by (17X2)+4
  2. Finish the short edges of the fabric.
  3. Fold one side under and hem. This is for the side of the fabric that will show on the outside.
  4. Fold the fabric in on both ends (right side of the fabric inside) so that there is a square the size of the pillow in the middle. For mine this means that I folded each end in 10.5″. There should be a couple of inches of overlap. Iron or pin in place.
  5. Iron the folds into place
  6. Cut your quote out of Heat Transfer Vinyl see this tutorial if you’ve never done that.
  7. Iron onto the center and then fold the flaps back over and pin.
  8. Sew across the top and bottom.
  9. Flip inside out and stuff the pillow into the pillow case.
