First I started with choosing a fun sentiment from the Silhouette Library.

After running through the Silhouette you just separate the extra Heat Transfer Vinyl from the sticky service. Make sure and take off all the Heat Transfer Vinyl that you will not be ironing onto your fabric.

Next I used a pen and round object to trace the circle onto my fabric. 
Then cut out.

I wanted to have a fun border on the pillow so I cut strips and sewed overlapping the fabric.

Iron on the Heat Transfer Vinyl for about 3 minutes to my fabric or until the Heat Transfer Vinyl is completely solid on the fabric. Put your iron on the highest temp, turning off the steam. Do not put your iron directly onto the Heat Transfer Vinyl this will melt the Vinyl. Use a fabric cloth on the top of the Heat Transfer Vinyl when ironing.

I am now ready to sew together.
