Hello, Friends! Marilyn here. Today (June 22), my husband and I are celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary. Hard to believe it's been 25 years - it went by in a blink of the eye. I'm a very lucky woman to have found the one whom my soul loves.
My project today is a pillow cover that uses the Bible verse from Song of Solomon 3:4.
I purchased a pillow cover from Walmart. Can't remember what I paid for it. It's a hounds-tooth pattern in polyester.
Using my Silhouette software, I simply typed the text out and sized it at 10" x 8.25". I sent the design to my ink transfer printer (Ricoh SG7100DN). The PowerDriver software that manages my printer flips the image for me and prints it out on Transfer Paper.
I pre-heated my heat press for 375 degrees. The ink transfer paper is positioned in the center and covered with a Teflon sheet. I pressed at 375 degrees for 20 seconds. The ink transfer printer I use is meant for cotton fabrics only. When I pressed it to my polyester pillow cover, it did transfer fine but also made a dark square around my image. Personally, I'm OK with this. After all, I have found the one whom my soul loves... what more could I ask for?
