Finally! It’s Done!

A looonnggg time ago I wrote a post about using my sister’s sewing machine:

where I hinted what I was making by adding these links that I’d found on pinterest :

How to Sew a Ruffle Pillow

I finally completed my pillows!  It took forever and I ripped and sewed and ripped and sewed.  My seam ripper got a lot of use.  There are still some things that I would do different if I were to do it again but I’m satisfied.

The material is different from anything I’ve ever seen. It is satiny feeling on the right side but a flannely (yes I am making up words now) on the inside. While the flannel side makes it much easier to sew it also make it very easy to fray.  The flower in the middle was the most difficult and I would sew the seam with the good sides facing together and then turn it right side out to avoid the fraying fabric look.

I recommend you check out the tutorials from Pink Toes and Power Tools and Design Sponge. They are great. They give a perfect amount of detail and pictures to get the job done correctly.

P.S. How do you like my instagram filters? I’m sorry I’m a little obsessed with them at the moment 😉

  1. LOVE how your pillows turned out!! I’m always shocked when I see the price of pillows in the stores–yours would be astronomical because they look so high-end 🙂 So glad the tutorial helped you create them! (also like the instagram filters too, btw)

    • Thanks very much for the tutorial and idea. I agree with you about pillows being so expensive! I don’t usually buy them any more but prefer to make them.

    • Thanks pillowsalamode! This would work well with your necktie idea esp. since neckties are often such beautiful materials!
      P.S. I absolutely L-O-V-E your blog name – it combines 2 things I love! 😀
