Fabric Applique Pillow

Let’s try home decor. It happens to be one of my favorite categories! When it comes to decor, I could change mine more than I like to admit. At some point though I realized I can still change up the look of a room while keeping my wallet in check. Pillows, friends. They have the magic touch.  Plus, they are a LOT less expensive than buying a new sofa every few months and with the CAMEO they are even easier to create!


This little pillow is one of my favorites, a statement with simplicity! With the sewable fabric interfacing ironed to the back of a white cotton piece of fabric, I cut the ‘love’ shape with the CAMEO to create a fabric applique. Then, because it already had the interfacing on the back side I could iron it right to the black piece of fabric that would later become the pocket pillow cover.

After ironing the word onto the black fabric it had a pretty good bond so I didn’t feel like I had to stitch around the edges, but it does give it a little more texture and durability if you do.  I used silver thread and the little bit of sparkle was the perfect touch.

Wouldn’t it be fun to take this concept and make a pillow for your kid’s room with a word or phrase they say all. the. time? Lot’s of possibilities with this simple idea!

  1. I love this project! What font is that?

  2. Hi everybody.

    I have one question. Can we cut the fabric without the fabric interfacing?
    And do we change the cutting mat at every fabric cutting process ? Or how many cuts can we make with 1 mat?
    Thank you.

    1. Hi Joanna,

      It does require the interfacing to get a clean cut, and you can use your mat repeatedly so you’ll get many cuts with just one mat.

  3. What font did you use for the LOVE pillow? Sounds redundant, but I LOVE it. 🙂

  4. I am a quilter. Can this template be used with wool fabric?
