Cannot contain my excitement for the new Create A Critter cartridge! I love the sneak peak images and had to use them to make some super cute pillows for my daughter (which she absolutely loves!)

CRICUT ®: WHAT WAS USED

OTHER MATERIALS NEEDED

  • Fabric (cotton) assorted colors
  • Heat-n-bond
  • iron
  • sewing machine
  • thread (pink and purple)
  • poly-fil
  • Cricut Craft Room
  • Cricut Font & Basic Shapes

Project Cut Files

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

Iron Heat-n-bond to all fabric pieces. Remove paper backing and stick to mat (the newer/sticky-er the better, also a new blade is highly recommended).

Optional- tape down sides of fabric to secure it even better to mat.

Cut pieces using Cricut Craft Room file provided. Iron pieces together to secure (see directions on heat-n-bond)
Use sewing machine to secure edges of fabric. (I used a satin stitch on the squirrel and a blanket/applique stitch on the name pillow.)
Sew front and back of pillow together, leaving an opening big enough to stuff.

Stuff pillow with poly-fil.

Hand stitch opening closed.
Give to 18 month old daughter, who won't stop hugging and kissing it!
