  How did the Cranky Queen make this pillow, do you ask?
Step 1:  Cut out 2 pieces of red ticking fabric to your desired size.
Step 2:  Cut out a large & small heart from red & gray fabric.
Step 3:  Cut out the wings using pinking sheers from muslin.
Step 4:  Type the pillow words using desired program on your computer.
Step 5:  Spray card stock with adhesive spray & smooth muslin fabric onto sticky card stock. Trim to fit 8 1/2 x 11 inch paper.
Step 6:  Print on the fabric.  I had no problem with smears or printer jams. Allow to dry. Cut out individual words.
Step 7:  Following directions, iron on cut out hearts, wings and words onto heavy duty Wonder Under transfer webbing.  
Step 8:  Peel off backing & iron on to right side of fabric (wings, red heart, gray heart then words)
NOTE~Iron wings & stitch around the edge with your sewing machine; Iron red heart & stitch around edges; continue with other pieces.
Step 9:  With right sides together, sew pillow together leaving a space to stuff with poly-fill. 
Step 10:  Stuff pillow.  Then hand stitch stuffing hole.
Step 11: Attach key by hand sewing.  Add ribbon or lace for finishing touch!
