Today I am going to show you how to make some No-Sew Death Star Throw Pillows. I found a few other tutorials online, and merged them together to form this project!
Here’s what you’ll need:
1. An old throw pillow 2. Two pieces of cloth (of your choice) that are 2″ larger than your pillow 3. Fabric Scissors 4. Exacto Knife (optional) 5. The Death Star and That’s No Moon Printouts (Download for free) 6. Cricut® Gold Vinyl 7. An Iron 8. Heat N’ Bond 9. A self-healing mat (if using exacto knife) 10. Scotch Tape 11. A ruler
See How to Make this Project >
1. Cut your print out down to a more manageable size.
2. Tape your printout to the back side of the gold vinyl using scotch tape.
3. Cut down the vinyl around the taped printout so that it is more manageable.
4. Now, carefully cut out the print out while it is attached to the vinyl. Your printout is basically acting as a stencil.
5. Once you have cut out the shape, remove the excess vinyl and the taped print out.
6. Move all of these items aside, and grab your iron, cloth, ruler and fabric scissors
7. Measure out your cloth square to be 2″ larger than your pillow
8. Carefully cut down your cloth to desired size.
*My pillow was neon orange, so I had to double up my white cloth so the orange wouldn’t show through. I bonded two white cloths of the same size and used that as “one” piece.
9. Choose which cloth is going to have the vinyl graphic adhered to it.
10. Carefully lay out your design on the cloth so you can use it as a reference.
11. Remove the paper off of the back of the vinyl and carefully attach the vinyl to the cloth. The vinyl will act like a sticker.
12. Preheat your iron to the highest cotton setting, no steam.
13. Once the design is placed, lay an extra piece of cloth over your vinyl, and iron where the vinyl is placed for 20-30 seconds, then remove the cloth
14. Flip over the cloth and iron over the back of the design for another 20-30 seconds.
15. Flip the cloth back over and let the vinyl cool for about 1 minute.
16 Once cooled, grab your Heat N’ Bond and your other cloth square you are using for the back of your pillow.
17. With the design facing up, lay down the new cloth square over the square with the vinyl.
18. Following the instructions on your Heat N’ Bond, bond the left, top and right sides of your cloth.
19. On the bottom of your cloth, bond only the right and left sides of your cloth, leaving enough room in the middle (this will be to fold your pillow in half and place inside the pillowcase).
20. Let the Heat N’ Bond cool for about 5 minutes
21. Gently turn your cloth inside out, and smooth out all of the corners.
22. Carefully press down your pillow in half, and place inside the new pillow cover.
23. Grab your Heat N’ Bond and finish sealing your case
24. Let the pillow cool for about 5 more minutes
And, congratulations! You have your finished pillow! 🙂
