Subway Art Christmas Pillow Tutorial

Here’s what I did: 

  • I figured out the size of pillow that I wanted to make. Then I split the pillow up into a green part which is smaller and a red part which is larger. It ended up being 5 inches in height for the green and 8 inches in height for the red. Then I sewed the two pieces together.
  • I decided to make an envelope back so I added 6 inches to the width of the back and cut the back in two — so the back overlaps by three inches. I sewed the pillow together.
  • I used my Silhouette and Heat Transfer Vinyl for the letters. I love that stuff!
  • I laid it all out on my computer and then cut it on my Silhouette.
  •  Then I ironed on the lettering. Note — Do NOT let the heat transfer material overlap like I did. It makes the heat transfer material stick to the vinyl. Very bad!
  • The last thing I did was make a flower for a little extra embellishment. I attached the flower to the pillow and voila I was done!!
Now I have a little Christmas Subway Art to ring in the Holiday Season!!
I just love my new pillow!

    How could I buy a copy of these transfers??? Would love to make this pillow but do not have the machine to make the transfers. I can iron it on the pillow and that part but need the transfers. Thanks

  4. I would love directions for the ornament pillow shown in the picture, too!

  8. Oh please oh please OH PLEASE will you post this subway art pillow in my Tell Me Tuesday link party? I really love it. Is a Silhouette or a Cricut better–what is the difference? http://vintagepollyanna.blogspot.com/2010/11/tell-me-tuesday-3-sweet-fabric-rosette.html

  9. I am a big fan of subway art too! Love it! Now I just need a silhouette! :)

  10. I LOVE this! I want to give it a try but I don't have a Silhouette. Would a Cricut work??
