“It’s a Wonderful Life” Pillow and a GIVEAWAY!

One of my all time favorite Christmas movies is It’s a Wonderful Life. It doesn’t feel like Christmas until I’ve watched it!  I love the messages that the move shares about life and what is really important.  I made this cute pillow as a visual reminder of the warm and fuzzy feelings that I get when I watch the movie.  Would it be weird if I kept it out all year long?


I sewed the pillow cover using a flour sack towel that I had sitting around.  It’s an envelope pillow cover, so I can easily cover the pillow with something else once the season is over.  Using the towel made it easy since I could use the edges that were already hemmed for the back of the pillow cover.

I cut the design, on my Silhouette, out of beautiful gold glitter heat transfer vinyl and ironed it on to the front.  I love it because it’s really sparkly without the mess of glitter.  The wreath was a design from the Silhouette store that you can find here, and here is a free Silhouette cut file that I created for the words.


And… I’m super jealous because someone is going to win this TransPro Mini Heat Press from Pro World!  You can make this project without a heat press, but this would make it a whole lot easier.  Imagine all of the custom T-shirts you could make!  To enter, just use the Rafflecopter widget below.  Good luck!
