DIY Farmhouse Pillow Transfer Download and Tutorial IncludedSo everyone’s in love with typography farmhouse pillows right now and I’m no exception. I’ve admired them on other blogs, looked at them on Etsy, but wasn’t willing to pay the price when I knew I could make them myself. All I needed was to find the time and create a graphic that I liked. 

DIY Farmhouse Pillow Transfer Download and Tutorial IncludedI had some unbleached muslin in my fabric stash, just enough to make two pillow covers so that’s exactly what I did. Once I had them sewn and pressed I sat down at the computer and came up with two graphics that fit my style. “A Farm Produce Truck” and a vintage “Route 66” sign.

I chose to go with what I thought was the easiest. I used a T-shirt Transfer that I ran through my printer and then ironed on the pillow cover. It was so easy I could literally make these all day.

The download will print off backwards and needs to be this way to transfer onto the fabric. When you iron it on it will be the correct way. Follow the directions on the package for proper prep and adhesion.

The produce truck will print off in a charcoal gray.

I hope you print them off and make your own farmhouse pillows to enjoy and remember if you don’t sew you can purchase premade pillow covers

    Very cute, Dawn!! I’m thinking you must have some sort of graphic arts background – all of your designs are so nice and so well done. And I love how you share all of them with us. Thank you!!

      Jen I love sharing them and creating them. I have one semester of graphic design and photography, I’m pretty much self taught.

    I love them. I don’t have a farmhouse, but the Route 66 has meaning for me – Route 66 ran quite near my childhood home and I graduated from high school in ’66. I am using the Route 66 logo for some of the decorations at my upcoming 50th reunion.

    The reunion is this weekend and I will have so much free time next week so I’m going to make a Route 66 pillow. I have some tea towels I bought just to make pillows with transfers.

    Love the black and white look of these pillows. I’m a big fan of iron on transfers as it makes adding your own touch to a piece very easy and doable. Visiting from Handmade Hangout.

      Victoria thank you for dropping by, and I agree it’s amazing the artwork that can be created and transferred to a pillow. I’m designing ones for Christmas too, so stop back by and download those. Have a wonderful weekend!
