This is a big, beautiful applique cushion that's surprisingly easy to make! I made it for my mom, and she totally *loves* it!

All that's needed are a few scraps of leftover fabric, scissors, an iron, fusible interfacing, an old pillow for stuffing, a little cotton thread or yarn, a few buttons, and, of course - good ol' needle and thread! I've provided the applique template here to print out, so cutting according to the precise measurements is no hassle at all!

Have fun!!!!

Step 1: Step 1 - Tracing and Cutting

Print the template (see the first picture below!) and trace the shapes onto heavy paper or cardstock, and then cut the pieces out (if your printer supports heavier-paper types, you can print directly on the cardstock itself, and then cut the pieces out!) On the wrong side of a sheet of fusible fabric interfacing (the glue/fusible side should be facing down), trace the shapes as follows: four large petals, four inside-tulip petals, four right-side tulip petals, four left-side tulip petals, and twelve leaves (the number of each shape to be cut is noted on each piece on the template, so this is easy!) Set the circle-cutouts from the template aside; it'll be used later on!
Thank you all so, so much!!! :-)
