1st cut: front cushion plate 42 x 42 cm two rear cushion plates 42 x 32 cm

2. Embroidering: Transfer the motif (correspondingly larger, if not of the same size) to the Soluv fleece with waterproof felt-tip pens, staple (or as desired) on the cushion plate in the middle and then re-embroider the contours (with 3-ply Sticktwist) in a stich stitch. Dissolve the Soluv fleece, then trace individual areas with textile paint. Fix the paint by ironing according to the manufacturer's instructions.

3. Stitching: Cut the two back cushion panels 1 cm wide on a 42 cm long edge with a 1 cm envelope and place the parts approx. 18 cm over each other (hotel lock) = 42 x 42 cm. Stitch front and back cushions left to left with 1 cm seam allowance. Cut back the seam allowance to 0.5 cm and cover the open edges with the colored bias strip. Insert the cushion filling.

And here's the tulip as a template for printing.
