Here are the supplies you’ll need:

Step 1: Open the cut file in Cricut Design Space. Click “Make it”. Select “Iron-on Vinyl” from the material options. Turn on “mirror” for the cut.

Step 2: Insert the Cricut pen into the cartridge before you cut.

Step 3: Place the HTV on the cutting mat with the liner face down. Then, push the arrow button to add it to your machine and then push the start button to cut.

Step 4: Continue cutting the remaining 3 images, making sure you turn the mirror image on for each.

Step 5: Take the HTV marked with the number 1 and use your weeding tool to remove the negative from the design.

Step 6: Place your pillow cover on top of the EasyPress Mat. Heat your EasyPress up to 315 degrees and 30 seconds.

Step 7: Heat the upper left-hand corner of the pillow cover for 5 seconds, place the HTV on top and heat with the EasyPress. Move the EasyPress all over the design heating it.

Step 8: Once the liner is cool to the touch, slowly remove it.

Step 9: Grab the HTV marked with the number 2 and weed the negative. Then, heat the upper right-hand side of the pillow cover for 5 seconds, place the HTV on top lining it up with the first design, add a paper towel under the pillow cover to protect vinyl getting transferred to your mat. Go over the liner with the EasyPress. Once the liner is cool to the touch, remove it. Use scissors to cut the excess vinyl and paper towel, making sure not to cut your pillow cover.

Step 10: Grab the HTV marked with the number 3 and weed the negative. Then, heat the lower left-hand side of the pillow cover for 5 seconds, place the HTV on top lining it up with the second design, add a piece of paper towel under the pillow cover on the bottom. Heat the design with the EasyPress. Once the liner is cool to the touch, remove it. Use scissors to cut the excess vinyl and paper towel.

Step 11: Grab the HTV marked with the number 4 and weed the negative. Then, heat the lower right-hand side of the pillow cover for 5 seconds, place the HTV on top lining it up with the third design, add a piece of paper towel under the pillow cover on the side and bottom. Go over the entire design with the EasyPress. Once the liner is cool to the touch, remove it. Use scissors to cut the excess vinyl and paper towel.

Step 12: Flip the pillow cover over and go over all 4 sections with the EasyPress, heating it for 15 seconds each.

Step 13: Unzip the pillow cover, add in the pillow insert, and zip up the cover.

See, I told you it was easy! If you fancy a different color combo for your own easy DIY geometric outdoor pillow with heat transfer vinyl, you can just switch it up. Get creative! Pair a pink cover with yellow geometric shapes or go for a more understated look with a white pillow cover and black geometric shapes.
