I saw this on Pinterest and fell in love. I adore Americana anything especially flags. In fact I have about 4 flag pillows already. Anyway, I wanted to make this pillow and the pattern was for sale. Ok I want the pattern but it was not in pdf format or instant download like most patterns these days. I was not waiting for it to arrive "snail mail", I had to make it or at least start it right then.
I don't know that anyone could pay me enough to make another one especially without a pattern. I started by buying the pillow form...12x16. Then I did a little math (very little math) to see what size ruffles that would fit on a 12x16 pillow. Then I remembered I don't know how to make an envelope pillow so I went straight to YouTube. The first video was perfect and easy to understand. Then I went to work making ruffles and trying to get them to fit perfectly on the front fabric. I won't say it was fun but the end product is definitely worth the trouble. I did monogram the 5 stars on the blue section. It was a 2 session project for me.
It's adorable sitting at my grand babies little white table and red chairs.
Look out Halloween, LSU football season, birthday gifts, Christmas etc, (you get the picture) because I'll be making pillows for every occasion.
I hope you've had a great weekend.
