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!

Thank you for the complete directions for using fabric. I have been wanting to try and now I will! I want to make a couple T-shirts for our group leaders at Vacation Bible School. I would also love to have a Martha Stewart cart, seasonal cake art looks good to me. I can see seasonal wall decor for preschool where I work. My daughter will want to decorate cupcakes!

Thanks so much for the step by step instructions! I've always wanted to make a design from any of the cartridges and put it on a T-Shirt but I'm toooo chicken! After reading all these steps I don't feel as nervous about doing it! I guess I better head to my local Walmart... Thanks! :o)

I've been meaning to try cutting fabric with my cricut but haven't been brave enough. I want to make a quilt for my new baby with butterflies. I planned on using the gypsy cart's butterfly, but I like the Martha Stewart butterflies too. Maybe I'll try different ones.

TeddynBarbie said...

I have always wanted to try fabric in the Cricut, but never really knew what to do. i would love to make a pillowcase for my daughter who is going off to college. This way she will always have a small piece of home while she is away.

Lucy said...

Your pillow is so cute! Love the idea. Your instructions make it look so easy. I always wanted to try material on tee shirts, maybe I could give it a shot. Thanks for the chance at a super great cart :)

Sharon said...

Your instructions sound so easy to follow using fabric in the Cricut. This would be great to make applique designs for quilt projects! Thanks for the chance to win the MS carts. I do both cardmaking and scrapbooking.

Ami said...

Love your pillow. There are so many things you could make with fabric and the Cricut that I can't just pick one. But, the first project would definitely be a gift for my Mom.

Ann said...

Very cute idea! I love the Martha Stewart cartridges, I just ordered another! Love the idea that you don't need her punches for the borders which is a big savings! I use them alot on my cards.

I am so glad you cut some fabric! I've been wanting to do this, but was so sure it would be a waste of fabric and time. I am definitely going to use this technique on my next home decorating project. Thanks for showing us!

Donnas Den said...

Your pillow looks great, I'd probably try a similar one using my toy story cartridge for one of the kids.

Thanks for all the tips

mitch1066 said...

What a great idea,you are so creative!!I am a newbie with my cricut expression and never think to look at the cake cartridges,they are lovely.My biggest use would be for cardmaking but i also want to make some window clings for a less than attractive window :)

kay said...

I just LOVE everything Martha Stewart & although I don't have a Cricut Cake, I'd use her designs with paper or vinyl for cards and decor.

Cardian Angel/Wanda said...

I think it would be fun to add fabric elements to little dresses and purses for my granddaughter. Would love to win a Martha Stewart cartridge--thanks for the chance.

Josie0602 said...

THat is a wonderful project! I have only cut fabric once and after seeing your pillowcase, I think I need to try it out again! I think I would like to make more holiday related home decor pieces...some framed items maybe for the 4th or even do month related art pieces to display in my kitchen. So many ideas flowing through my head now....thanks for the inspiration!!

Carol Amie said...

the holiday shapes are just begging to be made into T's for the kids. Especially the Halloween witch who simply can't wait to fly across and orange or yellow shirt with some glittery accents!

Anonymous said...

That pillow is too cute!! Thank you for the idea. I also must say that my absolute favorite cartridges are the Martha Stewart ones but I don't have them because they are hard to find on sale!! I would loooove them!!!!!!!!!

Tami B. said...

This post has got me so excited. I can't wait to try this out. Many times I've thought about how certain cricut cuts would be so cute on a t-shirt so here we go!

Tammy said...

I would like to make table runners using fabric cut with my cricut. Thank you for sharing the instructions for how to cut fabric.

That anonymous was me. I jsut got so excited about the Martha Cartridges that I forgot to do the name part. :)

Rhonda said...

Love this!!! I make t-shirts every year for my preschoolers with fabric markers so I'd really like to try and use my cricut to do them for the upcoming year because I know it'd be much faster and easier! I so want the County Fair cartridge.....our theme this year is Western/Rodeo....love your blog!

scrappin with a schnauzer said...

Thanks for the heads up on the heat n bond, I think I can make that work for a t shirt using one of the critters from create a critter. thanks so much for chance to win the MS carts I had never thought about using these just for the cuts,pretty sure I saw it on this blog. THANKS SO MUCH

KJ said...

I lived in Texas for a lot of years while I was in the Air Force, and I just love your pillow. I have made some quillows (pillow quilts) for friends and cut their names and initials out to put on the pillow part.

Beverly said...

Love that pillow case! Thanks for the great instructions for cutting fabric!

Anniebee said...

Fellow Texan here and I completely agree with embracing the traditional Texas icons and traditions! Your pillow case turned out so cute! I think they should have named that cartridge "State Fair of Texas" and embedded a voice chip with Big Tex saying, "Howdy, Partner! Welcome to the State Fair of Texas!" LOL I have been wanting to make my first quilt, mostly to display the fronts of tee shirts that belonged to my sister, who died last year from breast cancer. She had all kinds of pink and other breast cancer tee shirts that she got during her 6 year battle with the terrible disease. I inherited her pink E and plan to cut designs from the Pink Journey cart to use in alternating squares so that I could make multiple quilts, one for me and one for her husband at least. I would love to have a MS Cake cartridge to cut borders and other designs for my cards and layouts. Thanks for the chance to win!

Houses Built of Cards said...

Wow!!! Cutting fabric is something I have been wanting to try, but been too intimidated for! I want to make something with Kate's ABC's - because I got some fabric from Joanns that must be from the same designer - it is the exact same patterns as are on the cartridge! Don't know what yet, but trying to think of something to try with it! Thanks for the inspiration!

Very nice pillow, I've always wanted to try cutting fabric on the cricit you make it look so easy. I would love to make a 2 page layout using the martha stewart cake cartridge. TFS.

wimarinemom2006 said...

What a cute project. HSN was just showing this cartridge this morning with the todays special. I've never tried cutting fabric with my Cricut. Thanks for sharing the cutting speed and pressure.

bskt4holly said...

I am scared to cut fabric so I would use the Martha cartridge to scrapbook my old wedding photos. I think the art would be wonderful for old wedding photos:) Thanks for the giveaway!

littlen said...

i've never tried cutting fabric, but it looks like a great idea. i'd like to try making some seasonal placemats using this technique.

Brenda said...

Great Tutorial! I would love to make some T-shirts with the cancer logo on it for a 5-mile walk that I will be attending!

barb said...

Thanks for the great giveaway! I would like to try fabric as I am tiring of hearing my friends with a big shot/Sillouette knock my Cricut being out of style... :(

I would like to make the seasonal designs for appliques on onesies/t-shirts, and fabric banners. love them....

Kelly Braund said...

Super cute pillow! I have used the cricut for fabric & I love it! Especially for cutting heat transfer for tshirts.
The next project I want to do is to try to replicate a pillow I just found that I LOVE (but cost $180!) It was a natural fabric with three big butterflies.
I'm going to try to either use a butterfly cut as the outline to paint in or print & cut on the Imagine, but I'm determined to make something similar for less than $20!

Super great project. Thanks for sharing your ideas and your talents with us.

I want to make tshirts for all the guests at my daughter's next bday party. Thanks for showcasing this b/c I was trying to figure out what to use to adhere the fabric cut outs to the shirts.

Crystal said...

Thanks for the fabric cutting instructions! This will certainly help when cutting out appliques for my next quilting project. I also wasn’t aware Cake cartridges were usable for paper crafting as well!
Thanks

All the birthday cakes I make are pretty siimple, would love to have any of the MS carts to make them fun and give them character. Also, would love to make fun shirts for my kids.

"Texas , our Texas, all hail our mighty state"...what a gorgeous pillow. I must make one. As for the Martha Stewart cartridge, I would love to win the Seasonal Cake Art...and..I would use it on a cake...I love to bake

I see a valance with the barn and animals. I also see many cards and scrapbook pages with the cake cartridge. So many ideas so little time.thanks for the direcions and the chance to win the cartridges. I love your ideas.

Gramjak said...

This is such an excellent tutorial, Joy, that I feel I can make placemat and napkin sets for charity auctions. These sets always are a hit and with the MS cartridges I can definitely make lots of holiday-themed ones.

Thanks for this great idea!!!

creatively obsessed said...

I love that you included all the directions and tips - I seriously probably would not have remembered to use the flip button either. I've been wanting to make coordinating pieces for my girls' rooms and this would be perfect to tie in the pillows, curtains and bedding. More excited now to give it a try (just might start with the pillow and not the other two extremes).

Stephanie A said...

I would love to use the Seasonal Cake Cart to make some seasonal wall hanging similar to the style Melanie had on her blog!

Great job, Joy!! I have been wanting to make my dad a quilt using the wildlife cart for a long time now. I have had problems with the cutting. I think maybe my fabric is too thin. I just bought the real cheap stuff from Walmart.

What a great project!
Thanks!

This post came at a perfect time for me. My grandsons want me to alter some t-shirts for them, adding their favorite hand drawn Bakugon team symbols to them (for them to wear when they battle). I have adapted their artwork and stored it on my gypsy and my next step is to cut the fabric and make it happen. Thanks for the instructions !

kinderdi said...

These cartridges are so elegant. I think they'd be great for cupcake decorations--cut out of paper, put on a toothpick and then put in the top of a cupcake. I haven't experimented with cutting fabric in the cricut; sounds interesting! Thanks for sharing and the chance to win! I subscribe to you blog via email.

KAT said...

thank you for the simple, easy to follow instructions. i think i can do this.

TanyaT said...

Thanks for great directions. I helped a friend cut material with my cricut (I had the cricut-she had the fabric). It cut nicely and I was impressed...I have been wanting to do a small baby quilt, (my new granddaughter will arrive in 4 months)...I know I can do this! Thanks for the inspiration!

I would love to use the Martha Stewart carts on paper to make cards and scrapbook pages. She has some really great images and so many people think they are only for cake/cookie decorating!
Thanks!

Cute pillow. I have tried cutting fabric. It worked well. I used it for a quilt square. I would love to win the Martha Stewart cart., They have some great designs.

LisaRosan said...

I've been dying to try the fabric cuts! I have extra material from my bridesmaids dresses that I want to make throw pillows for my girls. This is great! Thanks! I still would LOVE the Ornamental Iron cartridge though.

lorby said...

Thank you for telling us how to use fabric with my Cricut. This will come in handy since just yesterday I was given a box of fabric from an aunt and was wondering what to do with it. Now I know! I'm a hopin' for the drawing too. I am in a Wilton cake decorating class right now and have been thinking of buying the small Cricut Cake cutter. One of those cartridges would positively talk me into it. : )

Peggie Sue said...

OOO - If I won the Martha Stewart give-way, the answer would have to be - What wouldn't I make?? ha ha - shirts, cards, scrapbook LOs, gifts, treats for my kids classroom parties, decorations, home decor - etc!!

Thanks for a chance at a GREAT prize!!

Michelle said...

I have been wanting to make a t-shirt for my daughter and onsie for my neighbor's baby girl and just havn't taken the time to research how to do it...now I can!!!

Alicia said...

Thanks for the directions to make the pillowcase. Super cute!

I would love to use the Martha Stewart cartridges to make a wedding album for my friend, who got married in Florida in March.

kb said...

I love using heat n bond with fabric. I plan to make some matching 4th of July shirts for our family. We are going to have a family picture done with our extended family. My dad has cancer and is getting very weak so we want to get one made soon.

I just started a cake decorating class too...the cricut cake would be an awesome addition and to have 2 cartridges that will work with both cricuts would be icing on the cake! (no pun intended) :)

Sally Gasparri said...

Your pillowcase is adorable. I subscribe to your blog and would like to win the seasonal cake art crtridge. I would use it to scrapbok 4th of July pictures from a parade we attended a few years ago and Easter pictures. Easter stamps, stickers and paper are hard to find. Thanks for the chance to win!

Great pillow case. I am going to have to try some for my kids. Love all the directions.

DuanaG said...

That pillow is amazing! I do a lot to help my friends who have gotten married in the last few years, they all know my Cricut is ready and waiting when they need it!!! The Martha elegant cake would be perfect for the favors we are making for a wedding later this year!

Phyllis McKenna said...

What a cute pillow!!! I haven't tried fabric cutting yet but would love to make some cute t-shirts, maybe for my daughters graduation party in July

Oh this is such a great idea! I've been wanting to try making some projects with fabric. My first project I think I'm doing to attempt to make a tote bag. However if I am lucky and win the Martha Stewart carts...I already have some cards in mind to make with those for my mom and sister!

Thanks for the extra chance to win some prizes!

sewnsew1943 said...

I am a quilter,one of the reasins I bought the Cricut Expression was because I knew I could layer applique with it. I have scads of fabric and have lots of quilt ideas that I can make a lot easier with the Expression. The more I learn about what you can do with paper (the more money I spend) because I can't wait to delve into card making ane paper projects!Have a great day all.

Coelle said...

LOVE the TX pillow...turned out so professional looking and pretty. Thanks also for giving such detailed instructions on cutting the fabric. If I won, I would use one of the hearts from Martha's cartridge to make a pillow or set of pillows for my son and his fiance ...their wedding is in Oct.

Em'smom said...

I am so gonna try it! I can see my daughters room filled with flowers on the pillows bed and heck maybe the ruffle too.
Thanks for the steps.
Lori

Northwoodszoo said...

Thank you for the detailed instructions -- now trying fabrics isn't so intimidating! Actually if I had those carts, I would use your instructions to try making a pillow case or two myself. With a little practice, wouldn't more make great personalized gifts?

jlzmom said...

Ooohhh Pick me!! I don't have any cake cartridges, but have always wanted to try them.

THanks so much for the fabric tutorial! I'm getting ready to make a flag for my son's scout pack. It needs to be western theme, so I was hoping to cut fabric using the old west cart. Thanks again!!

Sandy said...

Thank you for the instructions! I want to make aprons for my mom and sister (ok - and for me) for all of the different holidays! I would use the MS Seasonal cartridge to do that! Woo Hoo - if only I can be so lucky to win these! I have my fingers crossed (and it's getting hard to type). Thank you for the chance to win.

Just A Pac Rat said...

I have been wanting to make some logo shirts for my husbands computer shop. It is called Spurs computer cures and we have vinyl spurs on the window and on the wall. I now know how to make some on a shirt, thanks to you. TFS and the great giveaway.

I tried using my Cricut to make a confederate flag for a Gettysburg presentation my son had to do for school. I wasn't sure what I was doing and it did not work out at all. I ended up cutting all the white stars by hand. Thanks so much for the instructions for cutting fabric. I'm sure I'll be needing them in the future.

rhonda said...

I would love to make a Trick or Treat bag for my grandchildren using the Martha Stewart Seasonal cartridge. Or using the same cartridge, making T-shirts for our family reunion would be awesome.

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!

IRW Dana said...

I don't even live in Texas but I love the pillow. I've never used material in my Cricut so I'd love to make birthday shirts.
