How to Create a Stunning Pillow Customized for Your Home Decor with Digital Products

Digital Product Tutorial for Home Decor Throw Pillow by Betsy Veldman, Creative Team MemberDecorative Pillow Tutorial


Create your desired pillow design in Photoshop. When you are finished, flatten image and then click Image>Rotate>Flip Horizontal. The design will need to be printed backwards on transfer paper. Print your design onto the iron-on transfer paper. Use manufacturer’s instructions to heat transfer image onto fabric. I chose a very light-colored fabric to make the colors in my design very vibrant. Now with right-sides together, stitch to a backing fabric, leaving an opening to turn. Turn right sides out, stuff and stitch opening closed. I also added a patchwork border to the top and bottom of my iron-on design. You can do this by piecing together 2 ½” squares and sewing to your transferred design before stitching to the backing fabric.
