I am SOOOOoooo excited about these! I saw these on another web site that didn't ship to the US so I tried to make some of my own and I LOVE how they turned out! Hope I inspire others to make their own stuff!!!





actuallyyyy they are iron on transfers. Super fun and easy! And you can barely tell!

Those are so cool!  You've definitely inspired me, I think they're adorable and now I need to make a pair. Smiley  Did you stencil them?

Oh, duh, transfers are a much better idea than stencils, I bet they're more comfy to lay against than paint would be.  Thanks!
I'll totally post pics if when I make some.  Cheesy

I love these pillow cases! I was wanting to purchase some, but I didn't see paying $45 for 2 pillow cases. So I am glad that you found a way to make them! I might have to try to make some now too.

The pillow cases turned out so great!  What a sweet idea, and pretty simple.  I bet these would make a great wedding present too, for those of us on a budget!  Great job!

Oh! Do you have any suggestions for the best brand of iron on transfers to use?

Oooh!  I think I'm going to be searching out fonts now-- this is great, and I think it would be perfect for the gifty season coming up.  I'm always so behind, and this looks like it wouldn't take much time, but still be awesome and personal!  Thank you thank you thank you!!

How is it that Firefly gets cancelled after one measly season, but Tim and Eric Awesome Show has had five ?!?

I'm sorta new to crafting, but want to make these for some friends getting married this weekend.

How do you get the font that big?  I was thinking I'd just create the letters in Word and print onto an iron-on transfer sheet, but can't get the font anywhere near that big.  Could someone point me in the right direction to do that?  Thanks a bunch!!!  This is a great idea!

those are so adorable!
I was thinking it would be awesome to have "DREAM" on a set of two, but i think it would look a bit weird one pillow having 3 letters and the other only having 2.

Anyone got other cute word ideas for pillows like these?

Maybe "dream" on one and something else on the other..  hmm like this..



sorry I had to draw it to explain it.. I wonder how embroidering the letters/design would look.



**If it's inappropriate that I posted pic in this thread, just let me know. I'll remove it. :p

These look so awesome!  Totally something you would find in a fancy store.

How do they feel with the transfer on them?  Are they still pretty soft?  I have some iron-on transfers, I might have to try this out!

Hmm.. I was thinking about making a pillow similar to this for my boyfriend. Just one though. Any suggestions of something I could iron-on-transfer?

Oh, and as his parents think we're not together anymore (and for our happiness we hope to keep it that way...long story) it can't be anything that says "I love you" and the like. He's a year older than me and he went away to college this year so I'd like to make him something special  Smiley

I thank you for any suggestions as I'm having a hard time coming up with something...

For the Dream Pillow you could do Sweet on one pillow and Dreams on the other. Kinda cute! for the girl wanting something not so sappy but special you could do [ SLEEP ]  [TIGHT] my granny use to say. [CUDDLE] [TIGHT] might be cute for a sappy one. [SNUGGLE] [CLOSE] or maybe [TUCKED] [IN] or maybe [NIGHTY] [NIGHT] or how about [WHEN YOU WISH] [UPON A STAR] and some cute star graphics?
