iCraft® Deco Foil™ Transfer Sheets iCraft® Deco Foil™ Transfer Adhesive

Easter Bunny Pillow Directions:

1. Take your 18 1/2″ x 18 1/2″ denim square front and lay flat. Using a stencil of your choice (I picked a bunny for Easter), place it on top of fabric in desired position.

2. Using a paintbrush and iCraft DecoFoil™ Transfer Adhesive, brush adhesive all over bunny stencil, making sure you cover the entire area.  I dabbed the paintbrush all over to give the bunny some texture like actual fur. Leaving the bumps and not smoothing them out really helped create the fur texture.

  3. Take Deco Foil color of your choice (I used gold) and cover Transfer Adhesive completely. Hand press all over the foil to make sure it’s sticking to the adhesive.  Remove iCraft Deco Foil.  Repeat until you have the foil coverage you desire.

Pillow Backing:
1. With wrong sides together fold each of the 18 1/2″ X 22″ rectangles in half crosswise to make 2- 11″ X 18 1/2″ pillow back pieces.


2.   With the bunny pillow front facing up, overlap the 2 pillow back pieces so they measure 18 1/2″ square with the folds in the center.   Pin and stitch all the way around using a 1/4″ seam allowance.


*Backstitch at the folds to make pillow more secure when inserting form.



Turn pillow right side out and insert pillow form!  Your pillow is finished!
