Hi!! It’s Kaysi again from Keeping it Simple.
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 Throw Pillow!
– Supplies –
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” and 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!
