Cricut County Fair Texas Pillow and Surprise Giveaway!

Photobucket
Living in Texas means you must embrace the whole Texas-logo-way-of-life!  So this pillow seemed like a great idea to make for my son's bed.

I had not tried cutting fabric with the Cricut before but had seen the infomercial and it looked very easy so I thought I would try it.

I got all the supplies for this project at Walmart.  They had some pillowcases for $5 for 2 in many colors. Surprisingly, the fabric doesn't even feel scratchy (LOL!).  In the fabric section, I bought 1/2 yard of each color except yellow, of which I bought 1/4 yard.

Finally, I bought Heat 'n Bond, shown above.  It was $2.99 for 17" x 1 yard. I bought two packets.

Photobucket


Instructions:

1) Wash and dry all fabric, including pillowcases. Now iron all fabric. (This is the longest step.)
2) I cut the fabric into 12" x 12" sections and then ironed on the Heat 'n Bond onto the wrong side of fabric according to the package directions.


3) Using the Cricut County Fair Cartridge, cut the Texas shape (shown above) at 10-1/4", all layers.
  • Here are the settings:  Speed at Low, Pressure at Max, Blade at 6, multi-cut two times.  Regular Blade.
  • My fabrics were 100% cotton and I tried both cutting with the fabric side up and then the Heat 'n Bond side up (with paper still applied).  I found the fabric side up to be better, which I wouldn't have predicted. If you do cut fabric side down, don't forget to flip your images, like I did (grr!). Some people do remove the paper backing - I did not and it still worked fine.
  • Some tips: Use a new blade and sticky mat.  Use a brayer to smooth out the fabric onto your mat.
4) Start by ironing down the shadow layer, according to directions on packet.  Proceed ironing each of the layers on top of each other - they stack just like the Create A Critter Cricut cartridge.

5) The image is thick once all those layers are on so this wouldn't be the most comfy pillow to sleep on but for decoration, it's perfect!

Now for our Surprise Giveaway! 

TWO Martha Stewart Cake Cartridges!

These work in ALL the machines and can be used for papercrafting as well as cake making.

Thanks for instructions on cutting fabric. I had tried it before but my settings were all wrong.
Going to give it another try- Maybe I'll be inspired my So. California life style.

The Slaugh Family said...

I'm so excited! Quilting is my passion and was thinking of buying one of those expensive die cutting machines, but now I will save my money to buy more cartridges that I love! I'm new to the whole cricut craze and so far I'm addicted! It would be neat to win a catridge to add to my small collection, and experiment with fabric cutting!! Yay you guys are awesome, keep those creative juices flowing!

debpaint16 said...

What a generous giveaway!! Thank you so much for the chance to win!! I would actually give one cart to my DIL, because she is the "cake-Makin-Queen"!!! And, I would keep the other for myself to use to make cards & Lo's!!!

I never thought to use the Cricut on fabric. I am doing my son's bedroom in hot air balloons and it can be difficult to find accessories. But using the Cricut to decorate pillows and fabric wall hangings is a great idea!

Thank you for the directions. I have not yet used fabric, but have lots of ideas . I would like to make all my younger grandchildren their own special pillow from Nana. I am also getting ready to purchase the Cricut Cake machine, so these cartridges would come in really handy. I love everything Cricut. Can't wait till I can retire and play all day long!!

Elsie said...

That's fantastic! I've been trying to ignore the new cartridges (I have purchased 10 in the last two months), but you have sold me on this cartridge. I'm a Texas girl and my sister would LOVE anything made out of these. You have also opened up a world of possibilities! I'm making framed art for my great nephews room. Now I can make decorative pillows to match! Thank you!

Arlene B. said...

Kards by Kathi said...

As my cat is VERY spoiled, I would love to make a comfy bed for him. He is diabetic and this would make him VERY comfortable and happy. Maybe I would put my photograph on it and then he would DEFINITELY be happy. Ok I know that I am so over the top about him, but he is special. I have been a follower for a long time and am subscribed to your blog. Thanks for your time and talent.

I'm going to use HeatnBond to decorate the tote bags you get at the stores, with cotton fabric and felt, cloth flowers, etc.

Great project! Good to know about the heat n bond, I tried cutting flowers for hair bands without it and just tore up a bunch of fabric. Very helpful!

Thanks for the hints on cutting fabric. I tried it once and it didn't go so well but I think I used fabric side up and an older blade. Now I want to try it again! I think I will try a onsie with the New Arrival cartridge. Thanks for the giveaway. Those Martha cartridges look great!

So glad you posted your pillow. I have everything I need to make a pillow for my grandson's room at our house. It is a western decor. I haven't done the pillow yet because I just didn't want to hall the sewing machine out. Now I can use the cricut. Glad you mentioned the heat tap. My favorite cart of the cakes is the seasonal one. Hope I win. Sunday will not only be father's day but our 40th Anniversary too.
Thank you

My 9 yr old started cheerleading and I want to make t-shirts for all the girls but have been thinking it will be really hard, you made it look easy so I am going to give it a try.

Great pillow project. I would love to make my god son a 'Woody' pillow case because he has the bedding but was most upset that Woody was only on the duvet and not his pillow lol, he would be so happy. I have been wanting any of the M.S carts for ages just for all the delightful borders on them.

Roenick said...

Thank you for the FABRIC directions!! How perfect of gifts to give.

My project for fabric would be doing onsies for my soon to be baby. Seems more comfy and softer than plastic iron-ons and will last longer through washes.

I'd love to use the Martha Stewart for cakes mostly but think I could even use some creativity for fabric wall hangings or cards with the seasonal carts.

I love the pillow. I, too, have had the same pillow case idea, but instead using fabric to make flowers. Like you said, these pillow cases would be only for decorative purposes, but wouldn't they be so cute.

Kim said...

Cute pillow, it would go well in my son's cowboy themed room. I could do so much with the MS carts. I am always buying plain t-shirts then blinging them up and there are several designs on these carts that I could use to make t-shirts (they make great gifts). Thanks for sharing.

Michelle CLine said...

I want to make some t-shirts for my son, but I've been affaid that the edges will fray when I wash the shirt. Any tips for that? I made a painted freezer paper shirt for him using my Birthday Cake cartridge. The simple designs of the cake cartridges are soooo cute!

Great step-by-step instructions for cutting fabric on the Cricut.

I've been wanting to try it for making applique pieces for some dresses I make for our church's missions ministry {the teams take A-line dresses to orphans in Central and South America several times yearly when teams go to serve in the orphanages}.

I was never sure if it was paper, up, paper down and now I feel very ready to make some super cute dresses for some little girls who could use a smile.

Thanks for the post! J

I would like to make some shirts for work. It would be too cute. I work in transportation at school so I would put somecute school buses on them.

AJoy said...

I wanna take my daughters to the county fair JUST so I can justify purchasing this cute cartridge! I guess I could use it for going to the farmstead too! Hmm...even going to the movies would be good. I guess I CAN justify it!

Love it!

I just love these cartridges! I am working on a scrapbook for my son and would love to be able to use the cowboy/western themes!

PAT said...

Love your pillow. I just found out my brother and wife are expecting TWINS!! I want to make some matching onesies.

McBDesigns said...

Thank you so very much for typing out all of the directions! I watched a video once and bought all the stuff, but it's so much easier for me to see it written out than to watch a video again & again to make sure I didn't miss anything. The pillow turned out cute. I've lived in TX my whole life & always wondered if other states emblazon their shape on EVERYTHING too - or if it's just "us"?!

Love to make all types of cards and these carts should be ideal to make some extra fancy cards...a million ideas spinning in my head now! Nelda

I have several friends expecting babies in their families and I am making matching bibs, burp cloths, and hooded towels. I am going to cut out letters and shapes with my cricut. I have three fabrics and coordinating ribbon, I just have to pick up the heat and bond...I forgot it at the store! Can't wait to get started!!!

kim.mom said...

LOVE it!!! I've so been wanting to try something like this now I think I will!!!

This is adorable!

Karla said...

Thanks for showing the "Texas" pillow. I have been wanting to make a fun purse for the summer with western designs on it. You gave me inspiration. The body of the bag would be fabric, probably denim and then applique paisleys, phrases, horses, etc. all over it. Would love to win the cake cartridges, I can see lots of papercrafting I could do with those.

nightnurse said...

I love your pillow. I've been using heat transfer vinyl instead of fabric but I have some heat n bond so I'll have to get some cute fabric. I'd love to make my daughter and nieces matching tshirts for our beach vacation.

Thanks so much for the step by step (and simple!) directions! I've never really thought about using fabric because I figured it would be too hard but now I think I want to attempt some shirts for my daughter! She's not even 3.5 but wearing size 7/8s (she's huge!) and I hate that I have to buy her "older" looking clothes!! I'm now thinking of all the plain shirts I could buy her and make myself with all the adorable Cricut cuts I have available to me!

Being a Native Texan, this pillow is a keeper. Thinking about using the patterns on the cartridge to make a quilt, too. Thanks for the fabric instructions! Also love the Martha Stewart cartridges! You can use them in a lot of different ways. Would be great to have them....hint, hint.

Thanks SO much for the directions for using fabric in my Cricut! I would love to personalize my craft room by making some appliques for my curtains and pillows! And thanks for showing the backs of the two cake cartridges! I've never stopped to look at them before. They have SO many cuts that I would use papercrafting! Guess those are going on my wish list, too!

I have not tried to cut fabric either, so am glad you gave such great instructions. Great giveaway....carts look like they would be so much fun.

ScrappyChick said...

My sister is getting ready to have a little girl so I would use the butterfly to make a "girlie" onesie! I've used my cricut for a few fabric applications...and it's not as hard as I thought it was going to be...I love it!

Fabulous giveaway! The first thing that comes to mind that I'd like to make: t-shirts, and not just one for my daughter, but a dozen for her Girl Scout troop members! Our previous leader was super-crafty, and since I took over when she moved, and I have big shoes to fill!
Thanks for sharing this pillow project (I'm from Houston, so i can appreciate the Texas logo!) Thanks for the chance to win!

That pillow is adorable! Since I live in Texas and we go to family reunions in other states, I would love to do this on t-shirts for the Texas contingent! I am a follower! pick me!

I just cleaned out a closet of scrap fabric that I would like to use to make some quilts.

Dinah said...

I'm a Missouri girl, so the Texas motif isn't my thing, but it's great that you're showing us things we can do with our cricut! I'm drooling over those Martha Stewart carts though. It was this blog that taught me you could use cake carts in your cricut!

Would love a Martha Stewart cart, she has so many great borders on them. I don't have a cake machine, but would use it for the borders on scrapbooking pages!

I would love to make some wall decor out of fabric for my two grandson'w rooms. I think that would really set off their bedroom design. The list of things I would love to do wuth tge MS cartridges is too long to list. I love the border designs as well as the shapes.

Andrene said...

Havent tried cutting fabric yet but would love to start small and cut mats or embellishments for layouts and cards.

I've been totally procrastinating, I want some fun summer shirts for my three little girls. I'm thinking about using the hello kitty rainbow :)

Jill said...

My mom just bought a Cricut Cake, and I cant wait to make some awesome cakes! The cartridges are also stunning for card making!

Lisa said...

I am redecorating our livingroom, dining room, and making a new duvet cover for my bedroom. Throw pillows with a leaf (livingroom), or a pillow for our bed with a monogram or some kind of damask-like pattern would be beautiful. Perhaps it could be the center of the duvet cover too, to tie everything together.

Lisa said...

I subscribe to your blog.

Carolyn said...

I want to make some decorative frames and the Martha Stewart cartridges would work well. I would like to decorate a totebag with fabric. Thanks for the how-to!

What a great idea for using the cricut. I would have never thought of using fabric. I love it!

Jamie said...

Awesome project! I've been very curious to try cutting fabric. Ever since I saw a YouTube video. Now with your project, and step-by-step instructions of what to do and what not to do, I'm eager to try! I'm wanting to make cupcake cutouts to put on onesies for my 2-month-old.

Tracy P. said...

You always make things look so easy! I would love to try these for throw pillows-I love the paisley type designs on both cartridges.

Marty said...

The pillow is wonderful! I also found that putting the fabric side works better when I made aprons for the women to use at church functions. I would love to win the MS cartridge to use on snacks for the students where I work as well as my 16 grandkids. Thanks for the chance.

donna said...

I haven't tried cutting fabric with my cricut yet but a cute applique pillow for my Mom's birthday is a neat idea.
