Time needed: 15 minutes
Easily customize holiday and seasonal pillow covers with iron-on! Storebought covers and Fairfield pillow inserts make this project a breeze!

- Cut your iron on.
Click Make it in Design Space. Mirror your images on the mat screen, continue to cut your iron-on with the shiny side down on your mat.
You may find detailed instructions on cutting Iron on here:

- Weed your design
Using a weeding hook, weed the excess iron-on away from your design.
- Set Time and Temperature on your EasyPress 2
Consult the Heat Guide and set your EasyPress 2 to the appropriate heat and time settings.
- Press the design
Press the iron-on design with the Cricut EasyPress 2. Remove the Carrier sheet and enjoy your new decor!
- Insert the Pillow Form & Enjoy
The pillow cover has a hidden zipper. Unzip and insert the Fairfield World Pillow form. Rezip the cover and enjoy your new creation!
With the hidden zipper type of cover (versus the envelope cover) you can utilize both sides of the pillow! So I put a snowflake and the let it snow design on each side of a pillow so they are reversible.
I joined 24 of my friends for Pillow Party 2019! So many great ways to personalize and decorate your Fairfield World Pillow Insert!
