Vintage Photo Pillow Tutorial

Thumbing through the December/January issue of Country Living, I stumbled upon these darling throw pillows showcasing old photos. I loved the concept, and I knew immediately that these would make great, easy-to-sew Christmas presents! Some of you might remember the DIY Painted Tile tutorial I shared...

    Great Christmas Gift Idea! Wax paper transfer - DIY | Vintage Photo Pillows

    1 of 12 Pocket Full of Whimsy: DIY | Vintage Photo Pillows. I saw this pic in my December Country Living Magazine and thought they looked pretty cute. I think photos on fabric can very easily look tacky or cheesy but being that these were old photos, black and white... I thought they were kind of classy. It inspired me to make cushions from my own photos......

Smart little idea I hope to give a try! Google images of "_____ silhouettes", print in desired size and cut out. Trace on back of scrapbook paper and cut out again.

Cover a flat cookie sheet ($1 store!) with fabric and get an instant magnet board. Smart idea!

Thin muslin cloth is ironed onto the waxy side of freezer paper then ran through an ink jet or laser print (cardstock or photo card setting advised) to print out favorite picture onto the cloth side. Then freezer paper is removed and printed fabric is made into a pillow!

print photo on wax paper and then iron on to fabric. i want to remember this - might be a great christmas gift!
