How to Make It

  1. Cut a square of cotton fabric smaller than and complementary to the fabric on the pillow front.
  2. Scan a photo to fit with about a 1-inch border on all sides.
  3. Print it onto T-shirt transfer paper, trim closely around the photo, and iron onto white cotton fabric (do not remove the paper yet).
  4. Next, iron the white fabric to fusible web. Trim around the photo; remove the backing from the fusible web, and iron it onto the center of the colored fabric.
  5. Press and remove the paper from the iron-on transfer. Use fabric glue to frame the photo with trim and to attach the fabric square to the pillow.

    Tip: If you want to use a premade form for stuffing, be sure to make your pillow a standard size.
