Today, I’m going to show you how to make a pillow with a personalized photo viewfinder!
I have very fond memories of squinting into a View-Master and seeing images of my favorite cartoon characters and shows. As a homage to this retro “icon,” I made my own fabric viewfinder with images of my favorite people, my four kids. I placed my images onto a pillow, for all to see and enjoy!
Are you ready for me to show you how to make a pillow viewfinder?! Let’s get started!
- Silhouette Machine
- Viewmaster Cutting File
- Iron-On Heat Transfer Paper (Coming soon to ConsumerCrafts!)
- Silhouette Interfacing
- Silhouette Fabric Cutting Blade
- Fabric & Iron
Step three: Trim the photo print out, remove the plastic backing and place it on the pillow. Put the fabric viewfinder on top. Cover both the fabric and pillow with the paper that comes in the iron-on pack, and iron.
All my kids got a kick out of these pillows, especially the one with their pictures. My 22 month old likes to carry it around the house, point at all the pictures and name who he sees. This would make a fun photo gift for loved ones, too!
