“Sweet Dreams, Baby” Pillow Door Hanger by Patti Milazzo
Therm O Web Supplies:
Therm O Web Spray n Bond® Basting Adhesive
Therm O Web Heat n Bond® Lite Iron On Adhesive
Muslin; baby color/themed pattern fabric; solid coordinating fabric scraps; buttons, beads, hemp, silver eyelets; ribbon or trim for handle; baby stamps; Staz-On Ink; polyfil
- Cut 2 – 8” x 6” pieces of solid fabric for the pillow.
- Cut 1 – 7” x 5” piece of baby themed patterned fabric. Use pinking shears for fun.
- To position the patterned fabric in place without the use of pins, apply Spray n Bond® Basting Adhesive to the back of the patterned fabric and position it in the center of one of the solid fabric pieces. This will be the decorative front of the pillow. Stitch around the patterned fabric once.
Note: Therm O Web’s Spray n Bond® Basting Adhesive is very light and does not gunk up your sewing machine nor does it seep through the fabric. And if the fabric is misplaced while positioning it, simply lift it back up and reposition it as needed.
- Iron on the Heat n Bond® Lite to the back of fabric scraps (less than 6” square). Draw the appliqué shapes onto the paper backing and cut out.
- Iron on the appliqué shapes and stitch around edges.
- To create no-fray fabric tags, sandwich a piece of Heat n Bond Lite between a folded piece of fabric (right sides out), removing paper backing to completely bond the fabric together. The fabric can then be stamped and cut out as tags that will be resistant to fraying.
- Use hemp to tie on beads and tags to pillow front.
- Pin handle material to back side of pillow front so that it will be sandwiched between the front and back pieces of the pillow. Machine stitch the front and back pieces together, leaving a small opening at the bottom to fill pillow.
- Fill pillow with polyfil, do not overstuff. Stitch bottom closed by hand or machine.
- Tie on buttons where handle meets the pillow edge to complete.
Cake Layout by Melissa Bullock
Therm O Web Supplies:
- 1-12×12 patterned paper
- 1-5×10 patterned paper
- 1-4.5×6.5 pattened paper for photo frame
- journaling embellishment
- chipboard accents
- 3D alpha stickers
Cut your focal photo and photo frame with a digital die cut machine. Set the focal photo and frame aside.
Cut the same frame in a smaller size out of a iCraft Sheet. Cut 2.
Adhere the iCraft frame directly onto the photo. Trim the photo along the outer edge of the iCraft frame.
Peel off backing from the iCraft frame and sprinkle with glitter to create a glitter frame.
Create the flower accent by wrapping ribbon around a 2″ iCraft Dot. Start in the middle and twist the ribbon as you wrap towards the outer edge of the circle. Leave a short tail to tuck under the dot when adhered to the layout.
Spray the chipboard accents with Gold Glitter Dust.
Assemble the layout. Use 3D Foam Squares to adhere the smaller photos to give the layout some dimension.
