I made various amounts of each spot and sewed them haphazardly around the cushion. There’s really no wrong way to do it!

Finishing

Using yarn tails, sew the spots onto the cushion. I loosely stuffed my cushion and pinned the spots down before sewing to make sure I had them scattered around somewhat evenly. Take the bottom and top of the cushion and sc the pieces together around. When I was about halfway done with this step I began stuffing my cushion. I used a cheap fleece Ikea throw and 2 standard size bed pillows as stuffing but depending on size you may need more or less. At the halfway mark I went ahead and put in the Ikea blanket and 1 of the pillows. Continue to sc around until you are about ¾ done. Basically leave a hole just large enough to jam the rest of your stuffing into. Make sure to stuff your cushion VERY tightly. The fabric will grow quite a bit and the stuffing will spread out after a few uses so it will look the best when stuffed as firmly as possible to begin with. Continue to sc around, sl stitch in the first sc and fasten off. Give to your favorite woodland sprite. 🙂
