Pillow Talk- Iron It On

I was searching for some fun, "campy" pillows to add to our new cabin couch. Of course, there were quite a few I liked online, however my wallet didn't. Sadly, I cannot sew, I really wish I could, so sewing my own was not an option. Then I came up with this idea to embellish some store bought pillows with iron-on transfers.

Iron on transfer sheets are available at most craft stores. I actually bought mine at a office supply store.

Then I chose my images. For mine, I went on a parks and recreation website and downloaded actual photographs of fish we would find in our area. Mr. Cabin was thrilled that I picked the right fish! I just chose "iron on" on the paper type selection menu of my printer menu.

Here is the pillow before. It was a bargain at $4.oo!

To apply the images, just follow the directions on the transfers. I was a little hesitant about the fluffiness of the pillow and being able to press down hard enough with the iron but it worked fine.

The finished product. I still might add a rustic button or something to the middle. Yes, I can sew a button.

This was so easy I am already starting to think of different ones to make.


  1. Look at the great idea you came up with. I bet you will be doing lots of those.

  2. Is that a great idea or what? Amazing -- I love it.

  3. What a great idea! If you want to learn to sew you should totally take a beginners class. I finally did after years of wanting to learn and now that I know the basics it's so easy to get going further! Try it!!
