Favorite-Things Comforter and Pillows

Celebrate your kid's latest obsession (and brighten boring linens) with printable iron-ons. Whatever your theme - building blocks, butterflies - be sure to use digital photos or scanned artwork saved at the highest resolution possible.

For the greatest durability, apply images to throw-pillow covers or comforters; they will be washed less often than bedsheets and pillowcases.

Materials

  • computer and printer
  • digital images
  • t-shirt transfers (the dark kind for colorful fabrics; the light variety for white fabrics; we used Avery Dark T-Shirt Transfers)
  • iron
  • bed linens, plus a scrap of similar fabric, washed and dried

Instructions

  1. Print the images onto the transfers according to the manufacturer's instructions; print an extra for testing.
  2. Trim around the images.
  3. As a trial run, iron the test transfer onto the fabric scrap, according to the manufacturer's instructions. Adjust the iron's settings, if needed. Then adhere the remaining images to the linens.
