Heart-Shaped Cushions Made From Fleece Quilting Scraps! 

I often use fleece to back my quilts and I end up with long strips of leftover fleece after trimming. I asked the kids what we should make and they said rather bafflingly – hearts!

Materials Needed: 

– Fleece fabric – Paper – Pen – Round object – Quilt batting – Batting trimmings – Fleece trimmings – Fabric trimmings – Ribbon

Sew Fleece Scraps together in rows

Sew them in strips right sides together over and over until you have one or several large pieces.

Trace a Heart Template

The easiest way to trace a heart shape is to take one piece of regular printer paper and find something like a bowl or a mug that you can use to trace the top of your heart. 

Starting from one edge of the paper, trace the circle 2/3rds of the way around and then either use a ruler or freehand draw a line to the edge of your paper for the bottom of the heart.

Cut your Fleece Fabric & Batting

Use scissors or a rotary cutter to cut around your template but don’t cut along the straight edge where you started and ended your drawn half a heart.

Repeat to cut as many hearts as you can out of your scraps. Use two sizes of templates if needed to get the most out of your fabric.
