I found it worked easiest to glue the lining to the felt peep first, but both ways work. Yesterday, I showed you all these peeps pillow I made for the Iron Craft challenge. I wanted the large yellow chick to be bigger than a regular piece of paper would allow, so when I was cutting it I laid it out like the photo above. Center your peeps on their pillow fronts. Put pillow insert in through the slit and work into place. I decided to do pillows with slits in the back for putting in the pillow insert. It worked really well on the large pink bunny, but you can still see through the large peep a little bit.

For the large bunny and chick, I cut circles of black felt and glued them in place. Embroider detail on the chicks in yellow embroidery floss. Stitch around the edge of each felt peep with two strands its matching embroidery floss in a straight stitch. On the large chick, I used six strands of floss. I also like to backstitch at all the corners so I can clip them. I did this in a simple backstitch. Press if needed, but do not iron the felt.

Using a paint brush and fabric glue, glue the peeps to the pillow fronts. Place your back pieces on top of the front piece, right sides facing, so they overlap in the middle of the pillow. Cut the backs of your pillows and sew them together. . Then cut all the way to the edges width-wise and kept all the extra felt at the bottom. For the smaller peeps, I made double French knots using a full six strands of black embroidery floss. Then I glued the white fabric to the back of the felt.

You can win this set of Peep pillows. If you are using a lining between the felt and the pillow fabric you either need to glue it to the pillow of the felt design before glueing the felt peep to the pillow. Turn the pillows right side out. I start by bending down the top and glueing it down then folding up the bottom and glueing it down. Cut the front pieces of your pillows.

Since these pillows are seasonal I want to be able to change them out. I glue the patterns to the felt with the glue stick, I find it works nicer than pins on these small patterns. Once again, I used the Mark B Gone marker and the paper patterns to help layout the embroidery. The felt, especially the yellow, is a little see-thru on bold patterns. Cut paper patterns out and use them to cut peeps shapes from the felt. I used the paper patterns to cut and place the circles.

The large chick pillow is almost impossible to get square corners because of the felt in the seam so I left them rounded and thing it looks cute. I marked their placement using the paper patterns and a Mark B Gone marker. On the small chicks, I used three strands. Cut one large chick and two small chicks from the yellow, one large bunny and one small bunny from the pink and one small bunny from the blue. I like to backstitch over the ends of each of the back pieces where they hit the middle of the pillow to keep them extra secure when putting a pillow in.

I cut the patterns from the white fabric slightly smaller than the felt ones. Work the corners out the best you can, a knitting needle or chopstick can help here though be careful not to poke through. . . . . .
