Iron On Glitter Transfer Pillow abeautifulmess.com   I don't know about you, but I LOVE finding out about new craft supplies I hadn't heard of before. Just one new product can open up a whole new world of possibilities and projects. So when I saw this post about iron-on heat transfer sheets, my DIY heart lept for joy. A few weeks ago I saw that our local craft stores were carrying the product in a gold glitter version (I know, right??), and I knew I wouldn't be able to sleep well at night until I made something with it. Here's how I used it on fabric for a sparkly, and super friendly, glitter pillow.

Supplies:

-gold glitter heat transfer material
-fabric scissors 
-iron 
-white cotton fabric 
-pillow stuffing 
-pillow piping (optional)

Iron On Glitter Transfer Pillow abeautifulmess.com1. On the back of the heat transfer material, draw your design (remember to draw words backwards if you choose a phrase). 2. Cut out your design with fabric scissors or an X-Acto knife. 3. With your iron on the highest cotton setting (and the steam option OFF!), iron the spot on your fabric where your decal will be placed for about 15 seconds. Place your design shiny side up on the fabric and iron over the top of your design with medium pressure for 25-30 seconds. Flip the fabric over and iron for another 25-30 seconds on the back side of the design. 4. Let the decal completely cool and then peel off the top layer of film. 5. Now your heat transfer is complete and you can use your custom fabric to make your own pillow!Iron On Glitter Transfer Pillow abeautifulmess.com    Iron On Glitter Transfer Pillow abeautifulmess.com     Iron On Glitter Transfer Pillow abeautifulmess.com I love how easy it is to use this material, and my mind is swimming with all the fun things you could do with it. For now, this sparkly face is a friendly reminder to start my day off right (and reminds me of all my 90s babydoll t-shirts!). And the best part is it doesn't get glitter on everything it touches. What design would you put on your pillow? xo. Laura
