- Finished Size: 21" Diameter
- All seam allowances are 1/4" unless noted.
- Fat 1/4 = approximately 18" x 21"
- * = Adhere fusible adhesive to back of fabric before die-cutting the shapes.
Piecing the Project:
- Sew 20 Dresden Plate blades together to form the pillow top. Press seams to one side.
- Place the 4" Circle in the center of the pillow top. Heat fuse in place with an iron. Stitch around as desired. When ironing in place, use a Teflon pad underneath the project to prevent fusing to ironing board or work surface.
- Layer the pillow top and pillow back, right sides together. Pin and sew with 1/2" seam allowance, leaving an opening approximately 6" long to insert pillow form.
- Turn right-side-out, insert the pillow form and whipstitch closed.
- For added interest, sew a button to center of the Dresden Plate Circle and through the pillow for a finished tufted look.
