Directions

STEP 1

  • Select downloadable images or personal images of choice. Include “Paris” in font of choice. Follow manufacturer’s instructions to print images onto TAP. (Note: Designer used three to four sheets for this pillow.) Quick Tip: Set printer defaults to print any image with words in reverse. Include as many images on one sheet of TAP as possible.

STEP 2

  • Cut two 14” squares from fabric.

STEP 3

  • Follow manufacturer’s instructions to transfer images onto one fabric square. Images may overlap, creating a collage effect. When transferring images onto another image, cover image with baking parchment paper before ironing.

STEP 4

  • Trim fabric squares to 13-1/2” squares. Place squares right sides together, and using a 1/4” seam allowance, machine sew squares together, leaving a 3” opening.

STEP 5

  • Trim corners, and gently turn pillow right side out through opening. Stuff pillow. Use button thread to slip stitch opening closed.
