DIY No Sew Jack O Lantern Pillow
I was perusing online the other day and saw a cute Jack O Lantern Pillow but the price was $79.50!!! So, like any crafter, I thought “I can make that for less!” So here I am sharing how you can create this pillow too, did I mention this craft is no sew? So let’s get into it!
What you will need:
- Plush (low pile) fabric of your choice (check out clearance and sales!)
- Poly-Fil Stuffing (I always use a coupon when buying poly-fil!)
- Twine (available at Dollar Tree)
- Rope (available at Dollar Tree)
- Glue Gun
- Zip Ties (available at Dollar Tree)
- Cricut Machine of your choice (I used my Cricut Joy)
- Heat Transfer Vinyl
- Mini Heat Press
- Jack O Lantern design in Cricut Design Space
I created a quick tutorial to show how easy this project is, so check it out below!
Now that you have seen the quick overview, let’s walk through the process…
Cut your fabric into a 29×29-inch square. Lay it out on a flat surface.
Place a bunch of polyfill in the center of the square and then grab each corner of the fabric to close it. Make sure you don’t have any openings.
Next, twist the excess fabric and secure the base of the pumpkin with a zip tie.
Twist the excess fabric into a stem shape and secure it with zip ties.
Tie the end of the twine around the base of the stem and then bring the twine down and around the bottom of the pumpkin. Refer to the video to see this in action, it’s easier to show than to explain. 😉 Do this several times to create the pumpkin shape. Secure the twine with a knot on the underside.
Starting with the base of the stem, wrap the rope around the excess fabric. Securing as you go with hot glue. As you wrap the rope, form it into a stem-like shape. Trim the end and glue it to the top of the stem.
Next, open the jack-o-lantern face shapes in Cricut Design Space. Resize as needed. Load HTV on your mat and select Iron On Vinyl as your material. Don’t forget to mirror! Send the design to the machine and cut and weed.
Don’t have a Cricut? These shapes can be hand-cut as well!
Set your mini heat press to medium or high, place the vinyl on the pumpkin, making sure move the twine out of the way. Press the HTV on the pumpkin. Repeat for all the face pieces.
And that’s it! Wasn’t that a cinch? And isn’t it adorable? I can’t wait to make more! I’m gonna try to make a jumbo-size one!
