Bird Pillow for Christmas and Beyond

I found this cute bird graphic the other day.  I love, love, love anything with birds on it and love that I can incorporate it with my Christmas decorations.  Of course I intend to keep it out long after Christmas!

I started with this graphic from The Graphics Fairy
I printed it off on Jolee's Easy Image Transfer Sheets using my inkjet printer.

I cut around the edges.
I used a Ritva pillow cover that I bought from Ikea last year. 

I put the pillow cover over a board and a pillow case.
I followed the directions on the Jolee's label--twenty seconds on each part, lift up carefully, then set the iron back on another place.  I made sure I got each area several times for 20 seconds each.

I let it cool for 10 minutes, then carefully pulled the backing off of the transfer.
And here's the finished pillow.  Easy and Festive!

Thanks for your visit!
