2 pieces of square fabric- 11 inch squares
2 pieces of square felt fabric- 11 inch squares
Handful of whole cloves
Handful of cinnamon sticks, broken

Iron and cut four pieces of fabric into an 11-inch square. Place pieces right sides together and pin.

Stitch all the way around, leaving a gap of about three to four inches. Turn right side out. Iron again. Fill with cloves, cinnamon sticks, and dried orange peels.

To finish- topstitch about a quarter of an inch in all the way around, closing the gap as you go and being careful to keep the filling material away from the edges while you sew.
