Outdoor Pillow for Summer - Silhouette Challenge & Giveaway!8:00:00 AM
I am super excited about today's post. I'm going to show you how easy it is to make a simple and sunny summer pillow for your porch!
Not only do I get to share a fun summer project, but I get to share some of my friends'summer silhouette projects and we have an awesome giveaway to help you with your projects!!! Are you ready??
(Note: I have included affiliate links for your convenience.)
I have an amazing perk that ties my "day" job with my blog. As an architect, I often get to bring home samples. Since my office is moving, we're doing a little cleaning out. I've brought a bunch to my kids' daycare, but I've also snagged a few samples, myself.
I brought home a stack of fabric samples, including several Sunbrella exterior fabrics.
I picked out some fun fabrics. All that was left was to stitch the pieces together to make a pillow.
But before I stuffed the pillow I wanted to give it a little more excitement. Enter my Silhouette Portrait! I found some fun yellow flocked heat transfer vinyl in my heat transfer starter kit, and found a fun pattern.
I deleted the part I didn't want, and then I flipped the design (because you always need to remember to do that with heat transfer!)
Then I cut the design and weeded it out. I ironed it onto the pillow.
