picture pillows of perfection
If you want to make sure that your pillows turn out perfect, you’re going, patience. I’m assuming you let your personalized photo pillow to dry for 24 hours before you water to RUB off of design – the most important first step.
If your design is dry, you’ll wet in the tub and you RUB the paper. Use light to medium pressure, not too hard . . . because you can always let it dry, re-wet, and RUB then a little more paper. Remember that the photo look a bit vintage, if it’s.

Print out the pictures made on a dry toner printer or copies. I recommend to test all of the inkjet printer to transfer before you take your photo. Wash and dry the fabric and iron. I white cotton fabric for the photo transfer because I wanted the photos to show in a vivid way.
Apply a medium layer of Mod-hodgepodge, photo-Transfer Medium, on the front of the image that you want to transfer. You do not apply enough, so that you can see the picture. I have a cereal box in part, to cover my surface, but I recommend a silicone Mat.
Quick picture face covered looking down on the white fabric and smooth. Wipe photo-transfer-medium, which presses the sides. Repeat for the remaining photos. Let it dry for at least 24 hours (this is really important!).
If the 24 hours is over, wet the paper slightly with water and RUB the paper from the photo transfer. Until all the paper is rubbed from the transmission and then let it dry. Make sure you read the instructions on the packaging.
If you need to sew the fabric into a pillowcase, the pillow, you can move forward with the following steps.
Place the photo transfer face-down on the right side of the fabric you will use for the cushions and sew, leaving a small hole so that you can drag from the inside to the outside.
Turn the pillow inside, so that the transfer of the photos is now on the outside of the pillow. Stuff the pillow with the filling, until you are satisfied with the size. Make sure that the stuff in the corners. Fold the edges of the hole and use it to close the needle and thread (you can with a sewing machine as well).
