I wanted a small pillow that said Paris but I couldn't find one that I wanted to pay $50 for. All the small ones I found were online and $$$$. So I made one for myself with my Cricut and a foam sheet. First I decided to use the Summer in Paris Cart. I cut my design on multi cut at 7 inches. I don't have a deep cutting blade ( but that would work better). The regular blade cut the thin foam just fine on multi cut. When I went to take the stamp out of the foam sheet it was not cut all the way through. You have to take some scissors and make a small cut along the edge of the design to break the seal from the design to the foam sheet. Then you can easily pull the design from the rest of the foam sheet.
Now I have a stamp in which to stamp my design onto the Burlap fabric. This is a big stamp so I had to place it on a Fiskars foam footed stamping pad. The ink I had wouldn't stamp well on the burlap, so I used black paint.
I used the same fabric I recovered my chair in for the backing of this pillow.
I stuffed the pillow with fiberfill.
I cut the trim apart and added some to the corners of my pillow.
