    Step 3

    3 Take the 16½” x 16½” square of fabric A and draw a diagonal line. Place this unit with the cut strips and then sew together.

    4 To make a envelope back for your pillow, cut two 11” x 16” rectangles from the script print (FUS-J-301). Fold one 11” side on each rectangle in by 1/2”, press, then fold another 1/2” and press. Topstitch as close to the edge as possible.

    5 Place the rectangles right sides together on top of each other to the front of your pillow and stitch around with a ¼” seam allowance. Clip the corners at the seam allowance and flip piece to the right side of the fabric. Fill with a 16” x 16” pillow.
