Ruffly Pillow


This pillow took me sooooo long to make, but it was well worth it.  I am so excited with how it turned out.  I had one reader ask me how I made it, so I will make a quick attempt to explain.  I used polyester fabric (the slick stuff), and first cut out the squares for the pillow part.  I ironed fusible interfacing to them to make the sewing much easier.  Here's the time consuming part...I cut the remaining fabric into 3X4 inch squares, and melted the edges in a candle to help avoid fraying.  Then, I gathered each piece and sewed them on, turning each piece different directions.  I put each piece pretty close together so they could stand up.  After sewing all these pieces on, I attached the front and back piece.  Whew!
