personalized pillow cases DIY Pillows for Fall custom anniversary gifts
Updated: 2020-01-18

I am all about budget-friendly decorating, especially when it comes to seasonal decor. These DIY Pillows for Fall were so quick and easy to make using iron-on transfer paper and a few fall digital images.

I use iron-on transfers all the time to whip up instant decor.

This fall I was constantly feeling behind in my autumn decorating, even though it was only the end of September. First I threw together a quick Fall table centerpiece using?my DIY Cloches with a few mini?pumpkins I picked up at the grocery.? Then I headed to my favorite digital image site and purchased a bundle of Autumn designs for $3. After downloading, I quickly chose my?image and got busy! (Had these been available at the time, I wouldn’;t have gotten them too).?

I knew I had a few plain cream IKEA pillow covers that would be perfect for creating?simple and fast DIY?pillows for fall in less than an hour.?

Just a few simple touches, with minimal effort and just like thatpersonalized pillow cases, my home was decorated. I haven’;t even gotten my fall totes out of the basement. I’;m not sure if I will.

You can find the step by step full tutorial, along with a video on this DIY Home Decor with Iron-On Transfer Sheets post.

I usually just pick it up at Michaels or order it direct from Amazon.

I use Jolee’;s or Avery because that’;s what my local Michaels carries.?

One side will have either lines or printed text. You want to print on the plain side. Loading it in your printer will depend on how your printer pulls the paper when copying. To test, I mark the top of side of the regular paper that’;s already in the printer and then I’;ll print something random. When it’;s finished, I can see which side my mark is on. If the mark is on the printed side, then that tells me to load my paper face up. I hope that makes sense.?

Most iron-on transfer papers are for inkjet printers and will tell you on the package. You can find them for laser printers too.

Yes. Check the paper type for your needs. I tend to always use the one for light fabric. They even have glow in the dark.

Yes, I wash them. I’;ve made a lot of dish towels and they wash up great. They may start to fade or crack slightly after several washes.

Yes, but you’;ll need to reverse your text before printing, otherwise, it will print backward. See your printer settings on how to do this.

I just love free motion quilting, especially on my gorgeous BERNINA 750 QE!? I like it so much that I am always trying out new quilting designs on practice squares. If you know me from my book Free Motion Quilting for Beginners then you know that I hate to waste a practice square, so I am always coming up with new small projects to use them in creative ways. My book is full of patterns that do just that, use pre quilted pieces to make something like a bag or a place-mat or even a dog bed. This pattern came from that same school of thought, as I had just taught myself to quilt this lovely design that starts out as triangles but ends up looking like fans, and I just had to do something with it. The triangle shape I had quilted over and over got me to thinking more about triangles, and after some clever folding and fussing I came up with this pyramid shaped zipper pouch that is super simple to make and so much fun. It holds lots and opens up all the way, which is very convenient. I tested its size and it will fit a DSLR camera quite nicely, I also tried out my wallet, cell phone, keys, small makeup pouch and mini sketch book/pens and it fit all that! This is a new take on the traditional zipper pouch, and it sure makes a great gift, you only need a few supplies to make it, so let’s get started and in less than a few hours start to finish you’ll have your very own!
