I really believe that everyone should have a ruffle pillow!
Remember this post where I ooohed and ahhed about the ruffle fabric I just received?! Well, I am happy to show off my very first ruffle fabric project! And this project is a piece of cake, even for me--the sewing novice.
These drab pillows came with our couch, but they have not been very well loved. They have been collecting dust in my basement long enough. It was the perfect opportunity to change drab into fab!
This is probably the easiest pillow cover tutorial EVAH! I started out by measuring the entire circumference of the pillow. I added an inch for seam allowance.
I did all of my measuring and cutting on the flip side of the fabric. I cut a strip of fabric the entire circumference of the pillow so that I could simply fold it over!
Lovely ruffles, oh how I love you!
I folded the strip of fabric with right sides together, pinned the sides, and then sewed along those 2 sides only.
Next, I turned the pillow cover inside out and slipped the pillow inside.
This part took the longest: I blind-stitched the last side closed. Because this ruffle fabric is part spandex, it bunched up a bit. However, the ruffles easily cover this, so no biggie!
See--was that easy or what?!
I actually whipped up 2 of these pillows during Little Man's naptime yesterday. Now the question is--where should I put them?! (Indecisive decorating again!)
Perhaps on my new favorite chair??
But they also make a nice addition to my other accent pillows on the couch.
