Not too long ago, while blog browsing, I came across a little picture tutorial of a ruffled pillow at Creamy White and decided to try my hand at making one myself.
First I tore two and three inch wide strips of fabric and machine basted them right down the middle.
Then I pulled the bobbin thread to make the strips all ruffledy.
After pining them in place to the pillow fabric, I sewed them on. Also right down the middle.
Then I sewed up the pillow and stuffed it.
I had so much fun with the first one that I did it all again.
After posing the pillow on the bed,
I took no less than 127 pictures of Sophie.
I pulled some fabric from my stash (I inherited fabric stashing from my mother who inherited it from her mother) and would like to find ideas for a couple more pillows. I was thinking large square pillows using the fabric in the lower left corner.
