Jumbled Letter Pillow with Cricut Art Philosophy

Today's iron on pillow project was quickly and easily made using Expressions Vinyl iron on flocked vinyl and the  Cricut Close to My Heart's Art Philosophy cartridge

This cartridge has so many layers with all kinds of basic images on it, as well as some funky ones, like this jumbled letter art, which is all one piece (see above). They also have a jumbled number art that I used to make this gift bag below:
Back to the pillow:  I got the pillowcase from Ikea ($6), used one Ikea's pillow forms ($6) and then some iron-on flocking from Expressions Vinyl.  They have a great video on how to do the iron on; the only thing you have to remember is that the flocking is thicker and will require a blade of 5 and a bit higher pressure to cut through.  Also, remember always to flip your images with this type of vinyl.

Do you do any iron on projects?  I am really loving them - especially with the easy iron-on vinyl!

Have a great day!

  1. love that pillow, I have ornamental iron and I think it would be great on a pillow. I love owls and all kinds of critters especially since I also make jewelry, love to have animal themed pieces. Would love to win the Elmo cartridge. I tried to win on ebay and lost out.

  23. Is 40 over the hill, yes it is and so is 60. I have a large group of friends and when one turns 60, we give a surprize party and they are then included in the "60's " club. We have so much fun. I guess when we reach 70 we will do it again. Old is how you feel, not age. Love to win the this and that cartridge

  24. I am always so anxious to to see your next post! I am a scrapbook and card lover. Lately, enjoy the card making the best. Maybe because I am a older scrapper and love the card projects so much. I really appreciate all the ideas. Keep up the good work.
