Steps:

  1. Cut & fuse pieces. Cut two 19" x 19" squares from orange fabric. Press and pin as needed. Transfer patterns to cardstock and cut out (See Box A in Steps Photo, at right). Follow manufacturer's directions to fuse webbing to wool felt and muslin. Pin cardstock patterns to fused wool felt and cut out (See Box B in Steps Photo, at right). Cut legs from copper, stripes, and buckle from green, and boots from gray felt. Note: for boot, leg, and stripe, flip pattern over to create both left and right leg pieces. Fuse patterns in place on one of the fabric squares as shown.
     
  2. Stitch pattern edges. Thread embroidery needle with three strands of black floss. Blanket stitch around edges of patterns. Start with knotted thread from back to front of fabric, then working on top of fabric until re-threading (See Box C in Steps Photo, at right).
     
  3. Add sentiment. To add sentiment, use pigment ink pad and rubber stamp on fused muslin fabric. Heat set ink with iron (See Box D in Steps Photo, at right). Cut out with scallop-edge scissors and fuse into place on pillow as shown. Thread embroidery needle and sew a running stitch around edges of muslin.
     
  4. Embellish. Layer flowers together and insert brad through center. Place leaves on pillow as shown and stitch in place. Place layered flowers over leaves and stitch in place.
     
  5. Finish. Place right sides of fabric squares together. Use sewing machine to sew seams together on three sides. Clip corners and turn right side out. Insert pillow form. Use hand sewing needle and sewing thread to whip stitch opening closed.
