When I was making the Skull Cycling T-Shirt for Dillon for his birthday last week, I figured while I was already “playing” Cricut I would make this pillow for myself. I don’t know about the rest of you crafters out there… but I don’t seem to make many crafts for myself… I am generally making them for someone else. Not this time!
There is a little story behind this project. I am part of a couple of Facebook groups dedicated to the Cricut… projects, learning, advice, etc. Someone posted a picture of a dragonfly mandala and couldn’t decide what they were going to put it on. As soon as I saw it I knew I wanted to make it for myself… still wasn’t sure either what I was going to put it on… just that I was making it lol! I asked the member where she found the pattern and to my surprise it was in Design Space and was part of the Access program! I found it, customized it to the size I wanted once I decided it was going on one of the throw cushions on the couch…. and it a really sparkly heat transfer vinyl that I bought to put some hearts on another onesie I made for my granddaughter (I will attach a picture at the bottom lol) and then cut it out!
I have to admit that being sick and trying to weed glitter vinyl is not a good combination….. not even a little. Luckily one thing I do have is a lot of time… so I took that time and weeded it bit by bit until it was done before ironing it onto my pillow.
It is kind of hard to get a good picture of the glitter vinyl AND get the full effect of the glitter itself, but I did the best I could with the limited patience I have right now so I would at least have a post. Believe it or not, I have I think 4 or 5 recipe posts that just need typing/dictating but I just can’t seem to find the oomph to get them done. A post like this is much easier… not as many stops to insert pictures. Yes… very lazy!
Here is my pillow…..
And here is the onesie I made for my granddaugher!
