Step 1: Select Your Fall Designs Start by choosing fall-themed stencils or design files for your pillow covers. Whether it’s a cascade of leaves, a whimsical pumpkin, or a cozy autumn phrase, let your designs reflect the warmth of the season.
Step 2: Customize and Cut the Designs If you’re using a Cricut machine, upload your chosen designs to the Cricut Design Space. Customize the size and details, and let the machine cut the designs from your selected HTV. If you prefer manual cutting, trace the designs onto the HTV and carefully cut them out with fabric scissors.
Step 3: Arrange the Designs on the Pillow Covers Lay out your cut designs on the plain pillow covers, experimenting with different arrangements. Consider the overall composition and balance of your chosen fall motifs.
Step 4: Iron or Heat Press Application With your designs in place, carefully follow the instructions for applying the HTV. Using either an iron or a heat press, press down on the designs, ensuring even heat distribution. If using an iron, consider placing a protective cloth over the designs to prevent direct contact.
Step 5: Allow to Cool and Peel Backing Once the designs have been heated and set, allow them to cool for a few minutes. Gently peel off the backing to reveal the vibrant and securely adhered fall motifs.
Step 6: Insert Pillow Inserts and Arrange Slide your plump pillow inserts into the freshly adorned pillow covers. Arrange them on your couch or bed to instantly transform your space into a cozy haven with a touch of autumnal elegance.
Step 7: Optional Embellishments (Optional) Feel free to add extra embellishments if you desire. Consider stitching around the edges, adding fabric paint details, or even sewing on fabric appliqués for an extra personalized touch.
