i saw this idea in a book i checked out from the library...unfortunately i don't remember the name of the book. sorry! i used upholstery fabric (100% cotton) for the front and back squares. i layered polyfill batting in between the two outer pieces. after sewing the right sides together and then turning, i topstitched and added leaves for decorations. i did not use fusible webbing for the leaves, because i couldn't find any at home-i just topstitched. this was a great way to use up some small scraps of fabric i had laying around! what do you do with all your fabric scraps?
