Novelty Pillow cases

Just wanted to tell you that I have a tutorial and fun gift idea over on the Silhouette UK Blog today.

In the post I'll explain how to combine designs, types of vinyl and how to create a space around the words so that the vinyl media don't overlap. This method keeps the design as flat as possible making the finished item look more professional and ensuring the pillow cases are more comfortable in use as well. The same offset technique can be used with regular vinyl and even for paper-crafting.

I used the following files from the Silhouette Design Store.
Quote file downloads by Sophie Gallo (#140987#140989)
Starburst file downloads by Lisa Norris (#68600#68596)

... and also
and a Pair of Egyptian cotton pillow cases
Black Flock Heat Transfer Vinyl
Gold Metallic HTV
Silver Metallic HTV.

My post includes a few tips which I've picked up doing this and similar projects with HTV.

The pillows turned out beautifully and they feel great too!
