You’ve been waiting patiently for this one! If you tuned into last month to my Facebook Live with JOANN Fabric & Craft Stores, you saw me create one of these easy throw pillows using the Cricut Maker and Cricut EasyPress. Ever since then, you’ve been asking for a tutorial on how to put these easy holiday throw pillows together – and today is the day!
These easy holiday throw pillows are incredibly simple to make and require VERY little sewing ability, thanks to THESE zippered pillow protectors. If you can sew a straight line, you can make these pillows in no time. The rest of the work is up to your Cricut Maker and yourCricut EasyPress. I can promise you this, you’ll want to make a pile of these. Once you start, it’s very hard to stop!

Turn the pillow inside-out. Measure the width of your pillow case (in this case it was 18″), then measure 18″ down the length of the pillow. Use a ruler to draw a line down that 18″ mark.
Use a sewing machine to stitch down the line, then cut off the excess. This will create a square pillow case.
Generously apply the fabric decoupage to the back of the fabric cut out, then place the cut out directly onto the pillow case
Once the fabric decoupage has dried (about 30 minutes), use the Cricut EasyPress to add the iron on accents. Remember to use THIS chart to help you determine the correct temperature and time settings for your project.
Last up, use the Fabri-Tac Glue to adhere pom-pom trim around the edge of the square pillow case.
