texas "go team" no-sew pillow

Celebrate your favorite team with a spirited felt pillow that doesn't require sewing.
Step 1
Using your computer, print out the U.S. map template and enlarge your chosen state until it is big enough to fill most of the space within the pillow square. Cut out the state, lay it down on top of a sheet of the red felt, and trace it with a pen or marker. Cut out the felt state and set it aside. 
 
Step 2
Measure and cut one 17"x17" piece of white felt, and one piece of white cotton in the same size.  
Step 3
Iron the felt square to remove any wrinkles, then fold up ½" on all four sides to create a hem/finished edge. Press all four folded edges with an iron to create a crease. Repeat this step with the cotton square.  
Step 4
Apply a strip of Fabric Fusion® under the hem on each side of the felt square, then remove its backing and press down onto the fabric to hold the hem in place. Repeat this step to stick the cotton square’s hem in place, too. 
Step 5
Lay the felt square on a flat surface, wrong side up (exposing the folded hems). Apply a strip of Fabric Fusion® to the hem on three of the square’s four sides, then remove the backing on all three sides. 
Step 6
Carefully hold the fabric square over the felt square and match up all edges before pressing both squares together to adhere them. Turn the squares over so that the felt square is face up.  
Step 7
Turn your felt state so that the wrong side is facing up, and apply fabric glue around the edges with the adhesive pen. Carefully flip the state so that the right side is facing up, and place it in the center of the felt side of the pillow. Let dry according to the packaging directions.  
Step 8
Remove the backing from the embroidered letters and press them down on top of the red state to spell out “Go Team”. Add a red embroidered star for the city location you want to highlight.  
Step 9
Begin filling the pillow with fiberfill, pressing it into corners to fill the pillow interior. Do not overstuff.  
Step 10
Add a length of Fabric Fusion® to the hemline inside the remaining open seam on the pillow. Remove the strip’s backing and press both sides together to close the pillow.
