DIY: Justin Bieber (or any other teen heart throb) pillow

Okay, so my friend Es & I have a running joke about Justin Bieber (stemming most likely from this conversation). So, when we started threatening to get each other Bieber stuff for months I knew I had to make her something Bieber-ish for Christmas.

Hence the birth of the Bieber pillow:

1. While watching Seinfeld find a really large, particularly girlish, & straight on headshot:

2. In Photoshop (or Paint in my case) isolate the head:

3. Make up an awesome quote for the back:

4. Don't forget to flip the image before you print:

5. Print them out on iron on paper & then iron them on (HINT: press REALLY hard & keep moving the whole time you do it):

6. Let the transfers cool & peel back slowly:

7. Pin the front and back insides facing in together & sew it shut (but leave a hole open to stuff the pillow):

8. Stuff & stitch the stuffing hole shut:

9. Admire your EPIC uberness:

10. Enjoy the reaction:

That's awesome! I do think the best part of the whole thing is that the picture is taken from the "Take the fab or drab panties quiz" webpage.
