Soft Heart 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 Heart Cushions

– Fleece fabric – Paper – Pen – Round object – Leftover quilt batting – Batting trimmings – Fleece trimmings – Ribbon

Step 1:  Sew Fleece Scraps together in rows

You don’t need to measure your fleece scraps just decide if you could use them for a bigger project or not.

If not then sew them in strips right sides together over and over until you have one or several large pieces.

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.

Step 2:  Trace a Heart Template

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.

Fold your fabric over at one end, just folding it enough so the template covers all the fabric when the straight side is placed along the fold.

Step 3:  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.
