One of my favorite things to makes are pillows. They are so easy and so much fun!! There is so much you can do to a pillow and it can really brighten up a room!
I love ruffles and I love pillows, so I made a ruffle pillow!
I just loved the colors of this fabric Hometown from Moda. The colors were perfect for my family room!! I then got some yellow thread to go with it.
This is how I made it:
I cut a piece of fabric, just a white piece that I had, 14×18 inches. In the picture it was 18×18 but in the middle of it I decided that I wanted it to be rectangle instead of square.
Next I took the Moda fabric and cut each fabric into two strips, 4 1/2” wide and 44” long.
I folded the fabric in half and ironed it.
Then I sewed the top using a straight stitch and my longest stitch setting.
I pulled the bobbin thread and gathered the strip into a ruffle.
I pinned the ruffle onto the white fabric and then sewed it onto it.
I worked my way up, doing the same thing for each strip of fabric.
Here it is with all the ruffles, so much fun!
For the back I made this a cover, so I could just slip a pillow into it. I cut the two pieces 14”x18” 14”x10”. Then I hemmed the edges.
Before I put the back fabric onto the pillow, I pinned the last ruffle up so I wouldn’t sew it into the pillow.
I placed the back fabric onto the pillow, front facing the ruffles, and sewed all four corners together.
I flipped it inside out and then stuffed a pillow into it.
And now I have a super fun and cute ruffly pillow for my family room!
