Have you tried creating your own pillow covers to use in your home yet? Pillow covers are one of my very favorite ways to decorate for different seasons, plus there are so many different designs available too. Today I'm going to share with you how to layer different colors of Color Chimp HTV to get this fun look on this "Home is wherever I'm with you" pillow. 

For this project you'll need:

Craftey + The Happy Scraps Home is Wherever I'm with You Pillow -SuppliesUpload your SVG file into the software you are using. Edit the design as needed. I adjusted some pieces to be different colors than they were set for. Once it was ready, I sent the design to be cut. When cutting Color Chimp HTV, make sure you always mirror your image! Place your HTV on your mat, shiny side down, and then cut it.  Craftey + The Happy Scraps Home is Wherever I'm with You Pillow -ready to cutWhen all the different colors are cut, weed them by taking all of the unneeded HTV off of the carrier sheet.  Craftey + The Happy Scraps Home is Wherever I'm with You Pillow - weededPlace the gray design layer down on the pillow first, followed by the other two layers. Measure to make sure that the design is centered as well as level. Once all layers are in place, carefully remove the top two layers.  Craftey + The Happy Scraps Home is Wherever I'm with You Pillow -placeBe careful to not move the gray layer when removing the top two layers. Preheat your heat press, iron, or EasyPress.  Craftey + The Happy Scraps Home is Wherever I'm with You Pillow - Layer 1Apply heat to your design.  Craftey + The Happy Scraps Home is Wherever I'm with You Pillow -Press 1Let the carrier sheet cool just slightly, then peel it off of the gray layer. Keep your carrier sheet though! Craftey + The Happy Scraps Home is Wherever I'm with You Pillow -Peel 1Place the other two layers. Make sure that the carrier sheet from both of them don't over lap. You don't want to apply your HTV to the other carrier sheet.  Craftey + The Happy Scraps Home is Wherever I'm with You Pillow - Remaining LayersUse your carrier sheet that you saved from the gray layer to cover the entire design. Apply heat again.
