Hey everyone I am so excited to be a part of the Fairfield World Pillow Party. For this Fairfield World pillow party I am joined by some amazing bloggers that created their own pillow covers. Getting to use Fairfield World’s pillow inserts is amazing because you get to decorate the cover any way you want. I made a Christmas pillow cover that took me just about no time at all to create.

Supplies I used to make my Christmas pillow:
- Fairfield World Lumbar Pillow
- Cricut Explore 3
- Cricut Smart Iron-On Glitter Vinyl
- Cricut EasyPress 2
- Cricut EasyPress Mat
- Weeding Tool
- Pillow Cover (I made my own following this tutorial and adjusting the size to my pillow)
I started by opening up Cricut Design Space and choosing a Christmas word design from the image library. Once I chose my design I sized it to fit my pillow and cut it out using my Cricut Explore 3. When it finished cutting out the design I used my weeding tool to remove any of the iron-on pieces I did not need in my design. I then looked up the Cricut EasyPress heating guide on my phone to know at what temperature and time I needed to set my EasyPress 2. While my EasyPress 2 was heating up I began to prep my pillow cover. I did this by folding the pillow cover in half and doing a quick iron to create a light crease. Then I folded my Christmas word design in half too. Next, I lined up the 2 creases in order to have the design centered. Once my EasyPress was ready I pressed down on my image for 30 seconds. Then I flipped it over and pressed for 15 seconds. Once the iron-on vinyl cooled down I removed the carrier sheet. Then all I had to do once that was finished was insert my Fairfield World lumbar pillow. It fit perfect into the pillow cover. I hope this inspires you to buy your own lumbar pillow so you can create a decorative cover for it too. And make sure to check out this post for more details about the Fairfield World Pillow Party.
