Stitch Applique Pieces (Optional)
Thread two strands of black embroidery floss on a needle and knot at the bottom. Stitch the bat body and wing tips to pillow — a simple running stitch is all that is needed.
Cut piece of black felt that is a 22 inches square (Image 1). Sandwich black felt between both pieces of cream felt, right sides showing (Image 2). Center cream pieces of felt and pin into place to prevent shifting (Image 3).
Sew all four sides of pillow using cream thread and a sewing machine (Image 1). Place stitch line approximately 1/2 inch inside cream square to create layered flange around pillow (Image 2). Leave a 1/8-inch hole at the bottom to insert pillow form. Tip: To make a clean turn when sewing pillow corners, leave needle in lowered position and rotate fabric around the needle. This will prevent the corner from being rounded.
