Hide CaptionShow CaptionIn the inspiration room are three down-filled, hand-embroidered throw pillows valued at $990. Iron-on decals are used to create the Double Take pillows.
An image found on the Internet is printed onto iron-on transfer paper and then laid face down on the pillow fabric and ironed for a few minutes. The transfer is given a few more minutes to cool off and then the paper is peeled away to reveal the image. The fabric is sewn into a pillow cover, stuffed and finished off with blue and green trim. Total cost of the project: $78.

Tip: Iron-on transfers are a great, inexpensive way to customize fabrics. Transfer paper is about $11 for a dozen sheets. It is best to use cotton or linen with iron-on transfers because you have to make the iron really hot to transfer the pattern. If you use synthetics, they can pucker or melt.
