Hi! My name is Erika and I'm 15 years old.. this is my first topic here Smiley
I recently made this pillowcase, to go with the pop-art look of my room, and i absolutely love Andy Warhol and Marilyn Monroe, so i ironed on Warhol's famous image of her. I think it turned out really awesome, what do you think?

here it is..

and theres a zipper on the side to take the pillow out.

thanks Smiley

the paper is just regular t-shirt transfer paper by Avery
and my printer is an Epson Stylus Color 400. when i was about to print it, i went to properties and selected the photo quality option, that helped it look clearer

I love this!  You said in your post that your room is pop-art, what else did you do for your room?
Keep up the good work.  (and thanks for the tut)  This has got my imagination on all sorts of creative ideas.

my room has sort of a mod look to it.. with a chrome loft bed and chrome lamps, and i've got that hot pink and white bean bag chair (above) and i've got a big pillow that looks like a pack of candy, a PEZ calendar, my pez collection on display, and soon I'll be painting Andy Warhol's purple daschund to put on an empty spot on my wall Smiley
