Kentucky Silhouette Pillow ~ Silhouette Portrait Giveaway!

State Silhouette Pillow KY

I love anything that I can decorate my home with that represents the state I live in.  I have stenciled a pillow before with the silhouette of Kentucky on it, but now thanks to Silhouette’s fabric interfacing and fabric blade, I can make pillows whenever I please with fabric!  You don’t know how much this means to me…I love making my own pillows!  I decided to start with a silhouette of Kentucky just to see how it would work, and it turned out perfectly!   Our little turquoise desk now has it’s own little pillow!

Silhouette Supplies for Pillow

To make your own, you will need fabric, heat transfer fabric interfacing, and a Silhouette with a fabric blade.

State Silhouette Pillow Iron

You will need to cut your fabric and interfacing to the size you need depending on how large your image will be.

Iron the fabric onto the tacky side of the interfacing.

State Silhouette Pillow Kentucky

Smooth your interfacing with fabric onto your Silhouette mat and insert it into the machine.

Choose your image and program your Silhouette to do the cutting.

State Silhouette Pillow Iron on

Once your image is cut, iron it on to your pillow fabric.

Now, sew a pillow in your preferred method, and you’ve got it!

Kentucky Silhouette Pillow

Now isn’t this the cutest little pillow you’ve ever seen?  If you don’t prefer KY, just pretend it’s Georgia, or California, or heck, even Hawaii!

Now to the even better part…you can buy these Silhouette Supplies along with a Silhouette in a bundle at a huge discount….ORRRRR…you could win your very own Silhouette Portrait!!!

    There are so many thing I would use it for I don’t know where to begin; pillows, stencils, cards and the list goes on!

    I love this so much. I am now thinking I could make a KY pillow and a NY pillow for my husband. I have this amazing machine so if I won I would pass it on to my mom. I have been cutting out things for her and I know she would be busy making things if she had her own. Fingers crossed

    Erin says

    I just moved home from college, so I’ve been updating my room from a high schooler’s room to a post-college graduate’s room. I would make a pillow that matches my new, more sophisticated room!

    Such a cute project, Jessica. Of course, I think it would be even cuter as North Carolina! I’ve cut fabric with my regular Silhouette blade but would love to try the special fabric blade.

    Oh the possibilities.

    Arielle says

    Oh my goodness, I would make everything!! I’ve been pinning a LOT of those wooden signs with songs and verses on them, and I would love to be able to make some as a gift!!! Here’s hoping!

    Oh my gosh. Ever since one of my dearest friends got a Silhouette and I started seeing the stuff she could make with it, I’ve been drooling over getting one. (Someday when I win the lottery, I’m going to have a HUGE crafting budget!) This would make my year to win this thing!

    I love anything with a state on it also. My in-laws have lived in 4 states and I’ve given them artwork that represents 2 of the 4 states. Working on the last two now. I think a pillow would be a lovely change of pace.

    Hmmm, so many things I would want to make! I love that there is a “fabric” blade for the Sihouette. The electronic cutting machine I have now doesn’t always cut my fabric very well and I am limited to the cartridges sold for it!

    Sometimes somethings become so essential that it takes time to hit you. Silhouette is one such product, it could simplify my life as a crafter. A quite book and baby’s playroom decor are top of my to do list.
