DIY pillow covering with "You are my sunshine" saying on it.

I spent a couple minutes last week trying to make my house a little brighter. I wanted to get some vibrant colors into the living room, and so I pulled out my scrap fabric stash and picked a few that coordinated well with one another. I’m happy with what I have, but still need to make 2 more pillows and didn’t have any scraps that I felt went well. So I’ll be purchasing a few more colors! These are the ones that I have on my couch right now….but I did put the pink pillow on the spare bed and now I’m thinking it may need to stay there!

I made all of the pillow cases using the tutorial I shared here. It’s so easy and I really made 4 pillows from start to finish in less than 45 minutes.

Isn’t it looking great next to those other pillows? Yup, I think I need to keep it there!

Ok, now onto how I made it? I used my Cricut explore and cut out this file for the “You are my sunshine” image. I cut it out using the Lemon Yellow heat transfer vinyl from Expressions Vinyl. And then weeded it leaving only the image on the clear transfer film.

I put it onto the pink pillow cover right in the center. Then with my iron on high heat, I transfer the vinyl to my pillow case from the film.

Also, can you spot where I either forgot to weed the vinyl or another piece fell into place? It’s not too noticeable…and I didn’t realize til it was all transferred. So I’m gonna leave it as is!

  1. This. Is. Adorable!

  2. I have such a soft spot in my heart for that saying. I used to sleep over at my grandma’s house all the time and she had a bright sunshine painted on her guest bedroom wall with the saying “you are my sunshine”. I have always loved that so much! I think I need a pillow like that in my house!! Thanks for sharing!
