Introducing Cricut Iron On Vinyl!

Pin It
Provo Craft has come out with iron-on vinyl! 

They sent some vinyl for me to try and asked that I make a home decor project.  I saw a similar pillow design at JC Penney and decided to see if I could make it in the Cricut Craft Room.

Using the flowers from the Cricut Bloom and Cricut Create A Critter cartridges, and the shapes from the Cricut Basic Font and Shapes, I was able to layout the design quickly.
Below is a guide to putting the vinyl on the mat so you get it right the first time.  If you ever are worried about how to do it, be sure and try a very small cut out and see how it goes.
The instructions that come with the vinyl were very thorough and told what settings to use for which machine.  The guide above is for the regular Expression machine.

My pillow case came from Ikea and was $6.  The iron on was easy to use and the instructions were good.  The only difficulty I had was in doing the layers.  I needed to trim out the sections better, which I discovered through trial and error.

  1. Wow, your pillow looks great! I'm still a bit afraid of vinyl, for some reason! I need to take the plunge! This turned out great! Does the vinyl have a "hard" feel to it once it's on the pillow?
    Thanks for sharing!

  4. Wow, I really like the way the pillow turned out. I've only used vinyl to make templates for etching on glass. Those turned out perfect, so why am I hesitant to try something else? Beats me! Thank you for sharing this idea.

  7. I LOVE iron-on vinyl and have used it numerous times, mostly for grandchildren's shirts. They love having their own unique shirts. I love your pillow...does it zip or fold over in the back? (I need an IKEA trip.)
