Good Tidings Pillow

"Nothing says comfort like plaid flannel. I love recycling leftover fabric. This one is from pajama pants I made for my children when they were little and the wool from a skirt we used as a costume in a production of Our Town. The fabrics went together perfectly for this pillow. The finished product brings me great joy and happy memories. 

I digitized the letters using my Digitizer software and embroidered on the Janome Horizon Memory Craft 15000. The lettering download is free and sized for the MC15000's 9" x 9" hoop. It can be used for bags, pillows or pajama shirts. Let your imagination soar!"

I like the concept, but the directions are "sloppy." Nowhere in the supply list does it mention the felt or the batting (how much?). Also, I would never use a high loft batting in a placemat, or a table runner, as I think that it would be too unstable for a glass. The next time I make these, I will cut out the batting (I use flannel) and spray baste it to the wrong side of the Dresden plate before I put the Dresden plate on the felt to cut out. I have not yet washed the finished placemat, and am hoping that the single layer of felt does not curl up, or become distorted after washing/drying.

I made this today but your cutting directions need to be changed. You only need 4 of color 1 and color 3 4.5 squares for the triangles. Also the inner border, you only need 2 cuts as WOF is long enough to cut each in half to fit the sides.
