Make Your Own Polaroid Cushions

We all love a little retro in our home. What better way to make your home look like it’s been through a time machine than cool looking Polaroid cushions? 

Where can you get these very personalized pillows? 

Well, you could have them made for around $40 - $50 or you could become a DIY star and make them yourself for about $10 - $20, depending on the materials you buy. Big difference, right? 

Oh, did we mention that you don’t need to sew this awesome looking pillow either? 

What you’ll need for your epic Polaroid cushion: 
  1. Printer (you could always use your friend’s printer if you don’t have one)
  2. Transfer Paper
  3. Fabric (you could upcycle an old T-shirt)
  4. Scissors
  5. Hot Glue Gun
  6. Iron
  7. Cushion Stuffing (if you have an old pillow, you could use its stuffing)
Let’s get started: 

Step 1

Find your perfect picture, make sure it’s square-shaped and print it onto your transfer paper. 

Step 2

Cut your fabric into a large rectangle; you can cut away the excess you don’t need later. Fold it in half and iron out all the wrinkles. 

Step 3

Getting your picture close to the top edge of the folded side of your fabric and iron it on, you’ll need to read the instructions on the transfer paper you’ve got. 

Step 4

Turn your fabric the other way, so that your picture is now on the inside. If you feel you need to cut away some fabric, then do it now. Leaving about an inch away from the edge of your fabric, glue the ends together. Remember to leave an inch unsealed! 

Step 5

Turn your fabric the right way out again, and fill your cushion case with stuffing. When you’re happy with its puffiness, glue the last inch together. 

And there you have it, bet you’ll want more than just one Polaroid cushion!
