Subway Art Christmas Pillow Tutorial

Here’s what I did: 

  • I figured out the size of pillow that I wanted to make. Then I split the pillow up into a green part which is smaller and a red part which is larger. It ended up being 5 inches in height for the green and 8 inches in height for the red. Then I sewed the two pieces together. 

  • I decided to make an envelope back so I added 6 inches to the width of the back and cut the back in two — so the back overlaps by three inches. I sewed the pillow together.
  • I used my Silhouette and Heat Transfer Vinyl for the letters. I love that stuff!
  • I laid it all out on my computer and then cut it on my Silhouette.
  •  Then I ironed on the lettering. Note — Do NOT let the heat transfer material overlap like I did. It makes the heat transfer material stick to the vinyl. Very bad!
  • The last thing I did was make a flower for a little extra embellishment. I attached the flower to the pillow and voila I was done!! 
Now I have a little Christmas Subway Art to ring in the Holiday Season!!
I just love my new pillow!
