Patchwork and Ruffled Pillow

Mixed Fabric Pillow

Do you ever find yourself thinking…just one more pillow?

Or asking, “Honey, doesn’t this sofa need just one more pillow?” But don’t take his answer too seriously because guys rarely acknowledge the need for another pillow.  

“Just one more pillow.” I hear this often.  I think this often.

Especially with leftover fabric. Or while perusing the remnants at the fabric store. Or perusing the pillow aisle at TJ Maxx.

This was Elizabeth’s philosophy after we remade the valances in her kitchen and family room and she realized she had left over fabrics.

How about one more pillow?

Just one more pillow.

So Elizabeth sent me home with her leftover fabric scraps.
I texted her later with a few options and asked what she would like. Her reply?
“Surprise Me!” :)

Then she wrote…
“I love patchwork”, “Whatever looks best to you” and “I do love ruffles”.

So I pulled out a few more remnants, played around and created 576 square inches of fun! aka – 24″ x 24″ patchwork and double ruffled pillow!

Since we definitely weren’t looking to make a serious pillow, patchwork and ruffles ended up being the perfect combination!

    Gorgeous pillow. My husband drives me crazy saying don’t put too many pillows on the couch. I usually save the pillow overload for our bed, LOL!!!

    Oh…this is too cute! Such a colorful fresh take on pillows. I hope the stores copy this! :)


  6. Hi Sonya. My daughter and I both love the chevron and it’s accompanying floral print! What great colors it has. I’ve made her some seat cushions out of the floral and am just waiting for her to ask for some pillows. As always, the pillow that you made is fabulous!
