Autumn Pillow Cover Instructions

Step 1: Design the Space

  • Download the SVG file here, and you can also see it below.
  • Upload the file to the design space, and change the sizing accordingly. This will depend on the size of your pillow cover. Consequently, the largest cut is 11.5” x 11.5”, so plan beforehand.
  • Hit “make it” to continue designing your pillow cover.
  • Once you see it on the preview screen (also known as the grid screen), turn on the “mirror” feature.
  • Press “continue.”
  • Adjust the material dial to the “infusible ink” setting.
  • Use “more pressure” to ensure a clean print.

Step 2: Add infusible ink to mat.

  • Carefully remove the infusible ink sheet from the packaging.
  • Next, use the brayer tool, and add the infusible ink sheet to the Cricut mat.
  • Try not to over-touch the sheet to prevent any natural oils from your hands from interfering with ink transfer.

Step 3: Cut and weed the transfer.

  • Load the mat into the Cricut machine.
  • Push the flashing “go” button to cut.
  • Once cut, leave the sheet on the mat, and then begin to weed between and around the letters of the design.
  • The infusible ink is thick and may possibly make a cracking sound when removed. Additionally, completely remove it from the mat to fully separate it.
  • Use your judgment and apply the tweezers and weeder as necessary to get the small details.

Step 4: Add the infusible ink transfer to the pillow cover.

  • Use a lint roller to try and remove any fuzz, pills, or debris from the pillow cover.
  • Next, use a measuring tape to center the design.
  • Ink face down, place the heat-resistant tape all around the design to hold it in place when you press it.
  • Add a sheet of the included butcher paper (it should be in the box) to the pillow’s inside and on top of the design before pressing.

Step 5: Heat press the pillow to transfer the ink.

  • Next, as recommended by Cricut, heat the ink at 380 degrees for 60 seconds.
  • Press or iron — carefully and slowly — the surface while you lift the transfer straight off and on the design to keep it from moving.

Step 6: Remove the transfer paper and add the pillow.

  • After the pillow’s surface is completely cooled, remove the tape and transfer.
  • Lastly, place your pillow form or poly-fil inside the pillow cover.
  • Enjoy!
