Pretty Poppy Pillows!

It's been a dull gray winter and I've decided to make some colorful, graphic pillows for my patio furniture. There's something exciting about mixing bold colors with black and white stripes...... It seems to make them POP even more, don't you think? The awesome thing about these pillows is that they're practically NO-SEW since the poppies are appliqu├ęd with E-6000 Stitchless Glue. Just add a little glue along the edges and press into place. It's that easy!
Mix and match your prints!
Make two or three!
 Watch the short video tutorial here!
YOU'LL NEED
Iron
Sewing Machine
Scissors
Red, black, orange, and black and white striped cotton fabrics
Pillow stuffing
 Cut out 3 poppies per pillow
*One 8" and two 6" in diameter
Figure out their placement on a 19" x 19" square of striped fabric
Add E-6000 Stitchless glue around the edges of the poppy pieces
Assemble and iron in place until the glue disappears
 Add another 19" x 19" piece of striped fabric on top of the pressed poppies
Pin and stitch around the edges using 1/2" seam allowance
Turn right side out and outline the poppies in orange and black gloss Allure
When dry, stuff the pillows and stitch closed
