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 the tip on the Heat N Bond. I have made quite a few pillowcases, putting different kids' names on the end of the pillowcase using my Cricut. But the bonding agent I was using wasn't holding up very well after several washes. Please let us know how this pillow washes up!

Rebecca said...

I love tutorials on cutting fabric. I tried it once a long time ago and it was a miserable failure. But seeing other people do it with success is very encouraging and I may try it again. I'd love to adorn my toddler daughter's shirts with Minnie Mouse images cut from my Disney cartridges. That is how I would use fabric cutting with my Cricut!!

Star Ark Creativity said...

I love this now I can make my own t-shirts and pillow decoration on them. Thank you for give us direction on how you done it and the out come. The pillow is cute. Thank you for sharing.

Shari said...

I have lots of projects in mind but the most important one is to make curtains for my craft room. Three walls are purple and one wall is teal. I found some sheets that I like that is a combination of those two colors so I am making curtains out of the flat sheets. I have some flat purple sheets that I am going to make borders on the sides or bands on the bottom, I haven't decided yet. I am thinking about using my Cricut to cut some flourishes out of the patterned fabric and adding that to the solid borders.

My daughter and grandchildren moved in with me so I am moving a twin bed into my craft room for me so my daughter can have a room of her own.

That will sure make it easy to craft all night, night owl that I am.

I love the different uses for fabric! I have done stockings for Christmas but never pillows, that will have to be next!

So easy to stick on the vinyl and quilt around it. :)

I love cutting fabric with my cricut! I have made onesies for all the new babies in my life with the cricut and they are always so adorable and so easy! I just moved to a new home and would love to make some new pillows and other decorations for the new place!

This summer I'm interning with the foremost wedding coordinator in Charleston, SC and I would love to show them what we can do for invites, decorations and cakes with the Cricut!!! The mother of my boyfriend, whom I've dated for 2.5 years, has gotten me into scrapbooking and while I'm more comfortable with Creative Memories (since I do graphic design), I'd love to have tools to help me get better at scrapbooking with paper! The ironwork and Martha Stewart cake cartridges are perfect for helping me commemorate my college life in Charleston!

Susan said...

I forgot to mention that my boyfriend's mother's family is in Texas and we plan on visiting sometime soon. It'll be my first time in Texas!

Those Martha Stewart cartridge images would look great ironed on to a onesie. I liked the star! The seasonal one would be cute too, a little halloween onesie? Definitely!

Cool Pillow. I just got my Yudu so I would love to use the images with my Cricut and Yudu to make some awesome T-shirts. However, I have not taken my YUDU out of the box...I have to admit I am a little intimidated by the whole concept! I need to watch some Youtube demos to get motivated...lol

My daughter is on a "decorate the mantel" kick right now. I'm sure that if I had these cartridges the two of us would be decorating frames, making banners, and creating other goodies to decorate the mantel each month or season. There are so many great cuts on both cartridges. I would LOVE to win them.
