Last weekend when I was shopping with my girlfriends, we stopped by Anthropologie. Wow….I could spend some serious cash there!!
|Anthropologie – Meet Me In St. Louis Pillow|
I spotted this gorgeous pillow for $98.00. It was super soft and so adorable that I just had to make one!
I used an old t-shirt, a hoodie with a broken zipper, a pair of pajama pants and some white jersey material I had because I could find a plain white t-shirt in my stash.
Cut the material in strips that are 2 inches wide by 22 inches long.
Make cuts every 2 1/2 inches along the strip. I stacked a couple of strips and then made the cuts to make it go faster. Then, round the corners of the tabs.
Cut 2 pieces of material that are 14 x 22 inches long. Sew the ruffle strips on one of the large rectangles, about every inch so they overlap. I pinned the strips on and just held them out of the way of the one I was sewing.
Sew the second 14 x 22 inch piece of material to the ruffled pieces, right sides together. Be careful not to mess up the ruffles inside the pillow. Make sure you leave an opening.
Turn the pillow right side out and stuff it. Sew the opening shut and the pillow is ready!
Thanks for stopping by today!
