Applique Pillows - A Beginner Project

These pillows were my first experience with Applique. Be kind! They were fun, and turned out to be a good starter project. If you are looking for a first project, here are some tips:

1. Find a shape with straight lines only, or very few gently curves.
2. Also choose a simple shape, the larger the easier.
3. Always use an iron-on tranfer, like Wonderunder, to make applique easier.
4. Knits and other stretchy fabrics are hard!
