Valentines Day Pillows Cases

I’ve talked about this before and I’ll say it again… I have a strict policy on what I make for holiday decor. With the exception of a few Christmas items, I don’t want to store big decor items all year long. So these pillow cases are perfect! Easy to make and easy to store. I usually just sub out the cases on pillows I already have, when holidays come around.

These cute “XO” pillows can be made in 30 minutes! I used my Cricut Maker and Rotary blade to bring these pillows to life. Let me walk you through the process:

First, lets gather your supplies:

  • 2 – 20′ by 20′ pillow cases. (Gurli from Ikea – $4)
  • Contrast fabric for the letters. Twill works well with these Ikea cases. It’s a similar texture and weight.


Let’s get started:

  1. First prep your design files in Cricut Design Space. I used these files, and your welcome to use them!
  2. “Make It” – follow the directions in Design Space and cut out your ‘X’ and ‘O’.
  3. Spray the wrong side of the letters with Spray Adhesive. I used Therm O Web Spray-n-Bond Adhesive. Make sure your spray it on thick and even.
  4. Iron the letters in place. See adhesive for required time.
  5. Trim any fraying edges around your letters.
  6. Optional: Edge stitch around the letters. This is optional, but generally a good idea if you want these to last longer and fray a little less. Make sure you’re only sewing through the top layer of the pillow.
  7. You’re done! I usually stuff the 20′ by 20′ down pillows from Ikea that I already have on my couch all year long. I just sub out the cases for various holidays.
