For this pillow, I used the brushed font start today.  Lots of times, brushed fonts don’t work so great with vinyl projects because they can make weeding a nightmare.  Lucky for you, I took some time and edited this design to make weeding fairly simply.
 
Here’s what you need:
To start, upload your file into your cutting software.  Adjust the size to fit your pillow (mine is approx. 10″ x 10″).  Be sure to mirror your design.  Then load and cut with HTV vinyl.
Then, get to work weeding away the excess vinyl.  This step took me less than five minutes, so hopefully it’s quick for you, too.  Next, cut out your fabric.  I followed this tutorial for my pillow cover.  Iron all your fabric pieces, so they are flat and wrinkle free.  Then, follow the manufacturers instructions to apply the HTV to the front piece of the pillow cover.
I started with the black HTV.  I centered it on all sides and then used my iron to apply it.
Next, I did the red heart.  I just put it where I thought it looked good, no measuring there.
After your design is complete, finish sewing the pillow cover.  Envelope pillows are so easy to make!  This whole project can be done is less than 30 minutes.
What do you think? Do you like to look of brushed fonts?
