I absolutely love the fall!
Pumpkin chai, the vibrant colors of leaves on the trees, cooler weather, and football. I honestly have no idea what I love most!
When it comes to decking out your house for fall, there’s nothing easier than tossing some fun fall throw pillows on the couch to spruce up your space!
Though throw pillows are a quick and inexpensive way to change your decor, I have found a way to save even more on the cost of my pillows.
I create my own DIY Double-Sided Pillows!
That’s right, I put one design on the front and another on the back. That way all I have to do is simply flip them over for a fresh new look without having to buy an entirely new set of throw pillows!
So today, I’m sharing these adorable fall SVG cut files so you can make a set of double-sided Fall and Thanksgiving Pillows yourself.

Whether you’re looking for a fun gift to give your bestie, a thoughtful present for mom, or a gift for your neighbor, you won’t go wrong with these oh-so-fun pillows!
So let’s get to work!
Scroll to the bottom of the post to get a printable list
- 18″ x 18″ Throw Pillow Covers
- 17″ x 17″ Pillow Inserts (If you prefer a “stuffed pillow” look, go with 18″ x 18″ pillow inserts)
- Heat Transfer Vinyl
- Teflon Sheets
- Silhouette or Cricut Cutting Machine
- Cricut Cutting Mat (I prefer these over the Silhouette Mats)
- Cricut Weeding Tools (I prefer these over the Silhouette tools)
- Heat Press, Circut Easy Press (or household iron)
- Fall and Thanksgiving SVG Cut Files (You can find them in our FREE community library. Simply subscribe to our newsletter below to get instant access to them along with all of our FREE resources.)
Now let’s get started on those adorable pillows!
- Preheat your Heat Press to 350° for 15 seconds.
- Open your files into Silhouette Studio or Cricut Design Space.
- These designs were made for an 18″ x 18″ pillow cover; however, if you are making a different sized pillow, adjust the design so that it fits what you are making.
- Cut your design by vinyl color, making sure to mirror the image, if necessary. (Both designs have been created so that when layered, there will be no bulk.)
- Weed your designs.
- Insert a Teflon sheet inside the pillow. This will keep the Heat Transfer Vinyl from sticking when you place your second design.
- Center the first design on one side of the pillow. (To find the center, fold the pillow cover in half both ways.)
- Place a Teflon sheet on top of the Heat Transfer Vinyl Carrier Sheet and press.
- Remove the carrier sheet, lay the Teflon Sheet over the design and press again. (If you need more help, check out Adding Heat Transfer Vinyl to a Shirt. It’s the same concept no matter what type of fabric blank you are using.)
- Flip the 18″ x 18″ Pillow Cover over and repeat steps 4-9.
You now have an adorable Double-Sided Fall Pillow!
Whether you’re making a fun, Fall pillow for yourself or as a gift for a friend, you’ll have these pillows done in under 30 minutes!
