You will absolutely love how quick and easy it is to make your own homemade farmhouse pillows with this SVG design. Remember when using iron on vinyl to mirror your image before cutting the design on your home cutting machine. Cut the vinyl from your favorite color and coordinate with your other country decor.
The word art “farmhouse” was created using the commercial use font Alyssum Blossom Font Duo via TheHungryJPG. Preview porch bench mockup is by ToodleCaboodle via Etsy. She has some gorgeous mockups to choose from in her shop.
If you are planning to make multiple runs of this design I would highly recommend using a heat press. HeatPress Nation are experts and offer top quality machines at affordable prices.

If you prefer to create a more primitive looking pillow you can cut this design out on to freezer paper, then iron the freezer paper on to your fabric creating a stencil. Dry brush your favorite chalk paint on the stencil and allow to dry before pulling up the freezer paper. This design is 300 DPI so you can resize it to create any size pillow you desire.
My grandma taught me how to make pillows when I was 8 years old. Since she was a seamstress she had a large supply of silk and velvet fabrics that she had plenty of scraps of laying around. I would have given my eye teeth to work with quilting cotton, muslin, or even denim for my very first sewing project. She must have figured if I could master the slippery fabrics I’d have it made in the shade when it came to the rest.
My grandma grew up during the great depression and she didn’t waste anything. She had boxes full of worn out pantyhose (freshly laundered of course) that she liked to use to stuff pillows she made for around the house. For her paying customers who ordered pillows to match the upholstery used when grandpa reupholstered their furniture she had old wooden whiskey barrels filled with goose down and feathers. Talk about fluffy pillows! My grandparents would barter their skills for supplies from friends, neighbors, and members of their church congregation.
These pillows remind me of the old fashioned down filled bed pillows that grandma used to make. I think of her every time I get my sewing machine out and treasure all those memories of her teaching me how to sew.
