If you follow GYCT Designs on Facebook you may have seen that I just got a Cricut Maker (along with a ton of other awesome tools and vinyl). Of course, I had to create something...like...NOW. And who doesn't need some Kissy Lips in the form of a pillow? This was a great way to get to know my new machine.
I must say that I love this new pillow. I also love that I didn't have to cut it out. Nope. My new Cricut Maker did that for me. All I did was create the design, send it to my Maker, and voila! Cut out and I didn't even need scissors. And let's face it, pretty much everyone hates cutting out patterns. It is pretty much the worse part of sewing.
Once these cuties are cut out, they are a quick and fun sew. That means if you still need a last minute gift, this one works. Let's get started.here.
1/2 yard of fabric
Put together a full video tutorial or you can follow the step by step instructions below.
Upload the SVG file to Cricut Design Space. You'll want to resize the file to me 11.5" wide and 19" long. You can resize it to a smaller size as well. Prepare your fabric and place it on the 12 x 24 mat. Send file to your Cricut Maker and cut.
Remove mat from Cricut Maker. Peel fabric off the mat. Repeat step 1 and 2 with other side of the lip pillow.
With right sides together, pin your 2 lip pieces together. Leave a 2" opening on the top lip and a 2" opening on the bottom lip. Sew the 2 sides together. Clip around all the curved edges and trim your corners.
Turn your pillow right side out and press. Make sure all the curves and edges are crisp.
Use a washable fabric pen and mark a line across the lips to divide them. Stitch across this line.
Use the poly fiber-fil and stuff the pillow. Pin the openings closed and hand stitch to close.
