DIY Merry Christmas Pillow
In summer I got these infusible ink pillow blanks with the idea of making holiday pillows. My actual goal is to do reversible pillows so that one side has one holiday and the other side has another holiday. I knew exactly what I was going to do for the Christmas pillow and finally I am able to share these adorable DIY Merry Christmas Pillows!

DIY Merry Christmas Pillow Tutorial
I have a love affair with Cricut Infusible Ink. It is seriously so simple to use and the colors are always so vibrant and beautiful. I knew I wanted to make a very holiday themed pillow and of course I grabbed my buffalo check Infusible Ink. I designed the DIY Merry Christmas Pillow in Cricut Design Space and you can grab the design here.
Once the design was completed, I went ahead and clicked the “make it” button in Cricut Design Space. I mirrored the image and then placed the black infusible ink, ink side up on the mat and cut it. I did the same with the buffalo check following the prompts on the screen.
Once everything was cut out, I then used my weeding tools to weed each design. I will say, this was probably the most tedious part of the entire process. There are some very thin lines and you have to be very careful. I am also not the best at weeding, but found that when I cut each individual design away from the others, they were easier to weed then doing the entire sheet together.
From there, I randomly placed each of the designs on the pillow case blanks. I wanted a pillow that kept the eyes moving and allowed for a bit of difference between each pillow case that I was making. I then used my Cricut EasyPress 2 heated to 385ºF and pressed each design firmly for 60 seconds.
After I pressed the black background images, I then layered the buffalo check in the center of the pillow and pressed that following the same temperature and time as stated above. I did make sure that when I layed out the black pieces that I left a bit of space in the center to help the Merry Christmas part stand out. I think it worked out well.
When the pillows were completely done, I then stuffed them with kids bed pillows from Target that actually fit perfectly and gave them just the right amount of fluffiness! The pillow cases zip up easy for removal to clean and look sooo good. I just adore these DIY Merry Christmas Pillows made with Cricut Infusible Ink and cannot wait to do more holiday themed pillows like this!
