Easy 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.
