  • How to sew an applique cushion. Poppy Scatter Cushion - Step 1
    Step 1

    For some reason I never threw old pillows out. I found this one still lying around in the apartment and decided to turn it into a scatter cushion.

    What is great about this, is that you can decide what size you would like the cushion to be. I made mine rectangular and cut off about a 1/3 of the pillow.

    Pin the open side.

    I had to re-pin the seam because it was to bulky making it difficult to sew. So try to compress the filling as much as possible, and pin the seam so that it is rather wide.

    Cut a piece of fabric, a little bigger that the size of the cushion, to allow space to sew seams.

    Determine where to place each poppy on the cushion and mark the center point of each.

    To make the pillow case, cut 2 extra pieces of fabric, the same width as the one with the poppies on, but they need to be shorter. Also, for the newly cut pieces one has to be shorter than the other (these two pieces will overlap over the back of the cushion)
