DIY thanksgiving Pillow tutorial


Hello Craftionary readers! I am so excited to be visiting Hani’s blog today and meeting all of you! It’s such an honor  In case we’ve never met, I’m Taryn from Design, Dining + Diapers  A place where I share a little bit of everything but mainly craft tutorials, DIY home decor and allergy friendly recipes! I live in the Pacific Northwest with my hubby, 20 month old Baby Girl and our spunky Golden Retriever! I love the outdoors, coffee, baking, spending time with friends and family and watching Reality TV!
The holidays are in full force and my favorite day is quickly approaching



I love this day  I love the gathering of friends and family, the abundance of food and all of the beautiful decor  Since this day seems to be top of my mind lately, I decided to share with you an

Easy Give Thanks Pillow


Give thanks pillow
This pillow is a subtle way to bring

Thanksgiving decor


into your home and remind everyone in your household to give thanks 
And because of the neutral colors, you could even keep it up year round if you wanted to!

Supplies needed:
  • 1/4 Yard Canvas drop cloth
  • Heat transfer paper
  • Iron
  • Inkjet printer
  • Pillow stuffing
  • Sewing machine and sewing supplies


Give thanks pillow tutorial
Cut your drop cloth into a 10 1/2″ x 6 1/2″ rectangle  Using the program of your choice, create your “Give Thanks” graphic  I used my silhouette and chose Courier font all in lowercase  Then reverse the image to mirror it for transferring onto the fabric correcting  Print your graphic onto transfer paper (found at your local craft store) and trim the edges  Iron the graphic onto the fabric and make sure you get all the edges  Hold the iron for at least 90 seconds for best results

Once the paper cools, slowly peel it off  Now simply make a basic pillow  Put the right sides of the two pieces of fabric together and sew/ serge around the edges leaving a small opening at the bottom for stuffing the pillow  Turn the pillow right side out and stuff it, followed by hand stitching the pillow close
