DIY Santa Sack from a Dollar Tree Pillowcase
What you will need:
- 100% polyester pillow case (these come two in a pack at Dollar Tree)
- Sublimation Paper
- Sublimation Printer (I use Epson F170)
- Heat Resistant Tape
- Cricut Machine (I used my Cricut Joy)
- HTV (I used Holographic Sparkle Iron On)
- Heat Press (I used my Cricut Auto Press and Mini EasyPress)
- Drawstring Threader
- Santa Sack Design (I found this design on Etsy, just search Santa Sack PNG)
- Butcher Paper
- Lint Roller
I created a quick video to show you the easy steps, check it out below…
Now, let’s go through each step…
Step 1 -Resize the design to fit the pillow case and your printer’s specifications. I uploaded the design in Canva to resize it then created a printable PDF to print. I printed it on 8.5 x 14 sublimation paper and taped it together to make one large design. Don’t forget to mirror your design.
Step 2 – Press the Pillowcase to remove wrinkles, and use a lint roller to remove lint.
Step 3 – Preheat your heat press to 385 degrees and set the timer for 60 seconds Place a piece of butcher paper inside the pillowcase to prevent the ink from leaking through. Place butcher paper on your heat-press, and place the pillowcase with taped design faced down and centered. Cover with butcher paper and press for 60 seconds. Repeat for each section.
Step 4 – Remove the paper to reveal the finished print. Next, create your name in your favorite font in Cricut Design Space. Send it to your preferred machine and cut it on your favorite HTV. Cut and weed. Center on design and press. I used my mini easy press set on the medium setting. Remove the carrier sheet when cooled.
Step 5 – Next cut small slits inside the pillow case for the ribbon. Using the drawstring threader, add ribbon. Singe the ends with a lighter to prevent fraying.
And that’s it! Now you have a personalized Santa Sack for gifts on Christmas Day!
