Mr&Mrs Deco Foil Pillow-TOW

Welcome Therm O Web fans!!  This is Jenifer here with you today to share a project that I made for the Therm O Web booth for Quilt Market.  I wanted to go over some of the steps that I took to get the deco foil successfully onto my fabric.



Cut out your letters or design on the Deco Foil Hot Melt Adhesive.  I don't have a fancy electronic cutter, so I cut my letters out by hand.  You can trace over a large font you printed off you computer or you can use stencils.  Yes it does take more time but you are still able to make beautiful projects.

After all the letters have been cut then place them on your fabric.  The key is to NOT have your iron set on the hottest setting but a level below that.  Iron everything in place and allow it to cool completely.  Once cool then peel away the paper.

Now with the iron at the same setting iron on the foil with the parchment paper between the foil and the iron.  Allow the foil to cool completely.  Peel away the foil and you will have a beautiful foiled image.  

This is the foiled letters before they became a pillow.

Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my project today, I hope these tips will help you have a successful foiling experience.  Let me know if you have any questions.
