Deployment Pillowcase

My friend’s husband was deploying for 6 months on a submarine and she asked me to make her a pillow case for him.  She wanted a saying on it and pictures of her boys since there is little to no contact with families when a submarine goes underway.  I was happy to help and now I think I will be making one for my husband before his next underway.



  • Force:  15
  • Speed:  10/10
  • Passes:  1
  • Offset:  .25


  1. Print the pictures you want on the iron-on transfer.  She did this at her house and then cut them with scissors.
  2. Type out text in MTC or cutting software you use, remember to mirror your words!!
  3. Cut out and weed the saying
  4. Press your items on the pillow case (A heat press helps)
  5. Send with your loved one!!

I only got a finished project picture because we were trying to wrangle 5 kids and make the pillow case in a short amount of time.
