Graphic Animal Silhouette Pillows DIY

Need a quick sofa makeover or a gift for your favorite nephew or niece?  How about making them an Animal Silhouette Pillow with E-6000 StitchLess Iron On Glue.  Just cut out your shape, coat it with the glue and iron it on!  You'll be the envy of all your friends.  
My pillow zoo!
 I think my dad would love this one
 My niece Jennah will love this!
I'm keeping this one!
See the video tutorial here
Silhouette of animal you like
Graphic fabrics in black and white
Cotton fabrics in bright colors
Sewing Machine
Pillow stuffing
Needle and thread
 Print this in gray scale (to save ink) and enlarge it to fit a standard sheet of copy paper

 Cut out a piece of fabric big enough for your silhouette
Pin and carefully cut it out
Try different silhouettes (Google ANIMAL SILHOUETTE)
 Cut two 19" x 19" pieces of graphic fabric
Pin and stitch them together using 1/2" seam allowance
Leave a 5" hole on one side
Paint an even layer of E-6000 StitchLess on the fabric silhouette

With the glue side down, center it on the pillow and iron it in place
Stuff the pillow with pillow stuffing
Pin the 5" hole closed
Stitch closed with needle and thread


  1. I love this idea! I am thinking of making black silhouettes of my best friend's granddaughters' faces and putting them on pillows!!
