Father’s Day Pillow with Infusible Ink
Not to long ago I was learning to use Infusible Ink from Cricut and I totally messed up the front of one of the t-shirts. Today I used the back and turned it into a pillow for Father’s Day. This Father’s Day Pillow with Infusible Ink is the perfect way to get your kids in on the making of one magnificent gift.
- Cricut T-Shirt
- Cricut Infusible Ink Markers
- Sewing Machine
- Cricut Easy Press
- Pillow Insert (Indoor/Outdoor from Fairfield World)
Steps to Make Father’s Day Pillow
- Draw and color design on regular printer paper with Infusible Ink Markers. If there are words, be sure to write them BACKWARDS!
- Heat the Cricut Easy Press to 385 degrees. Warm the t-shirt first and make sure it is free of any debris.
- Place the paper on the t-shirt with the ink touching the shirt. Put the Easy Press on for 45 seconds and remove.
- Remove Paper and let the t-shirt cool before next step..
- Cut the design out and sew it to a larger piece of fabric that will be the front of the pillow. The size will be determined by the size of your insert.
- Sew that piece of fabric front facing front to another piece, leaving an opening to insert the pillow.
Flip the fabric. Insert the pillow. Sew the opening closed. BAM!
