Bird Pillow for Christmas and Beyond

I found this cute bird graphic the other day.  I love, love, love anything with birds on it and love that I can incorporate it with my Christmas decorations.  Of course I intend to keep it out long after Christmas!

I started with this graphic from The Graphics Fairy
I printed it off on Jolee's Easy Image Transfer Sheets using my inkjet printer.

I cut around the edges.
I used a Ritva pillow cover that I bought from Ikea last year. 

I put the pillow cover over a board and a pillow case.
I followed the directions on the Jolee's label--twenty seconds on each part, lift up carefully, then set the iron back on another place.  I made sure I got each area several times for 20 seconds each.

I let it cool for 10 minutes, then carefully pulled the backing off of the transfer.
And here's the finished pillow.  Easy and Festive!

Thanks for your visit!

  1. Pam, what a cute idea! I love birds for the holidays, and this is such a nice way to incorperate them in a different way! Thanks for sharing! :)

  2. Hi Pam, your bird pillow is too cute. Perfect for Christmas and beyond, as you say..Happy Monday..Judy

  3. Oh! You did a super job.
    Like the tutorial too. I always like it when the poster takes the time to show a specific product or tool they use in its original packaging.
    I've contemplated doing some sort of transfer work for a while, but never thought I'd really be able to pull it off. Thanks for sharing this.

  4. Love this graphic so much I used it for my Christmas cards and am going to put it on some tea towels for gifts. Thanks for the tutorial.

  5. So darn cute, I love it. Great tips on how to, also.

  6. Looks great Pam! Love the birds!

  7. Thank you for posting the graphic.. I love it and am going to try making it.. your pillow is beautiful!
    I did my first transfer onto a pillow this week
    and I used parchment paper, it worked perfectly.
    Happy Holidays to you and your family!

  8. I love this graphic and have used it a couple of times myself ... pillow looks great.
