The other day, I was browsing Etsy and came across some union jack pillow covers I liked. One of them gave me an idea for a plain one that I already had. This was my inspiration.
I noticed that the underlying part of the pillow was very similar to my own. What made this one so attractive to me was the blue and white patterned fabric added on top. So, I grabbed my pillow cover and some blue and white floral material. Correction............a blue and white floral pillow cover that I bought at a consignment store and wasn't using.
It's actually from Ralph Lauren. I hated to cut it up, but I realized that I would like my new pillow better than this one by itself. So it was worth the sacrifice!
So, here is my new pillow!
Now, since I don't own a sewing machine, I just used fabric glue to add my floral fabric strips. But, the main pillow was purchased on Etsy a few years ago and is very well made. I like how the floral fabric makes the union jack pattern stand out now.
I placed it in my wing back chair in the sitting room.
Isn't it great when you can find a way to recreate something you saw and do it with supplies that you already had on hand? This was an easy and fun project. Now, I need to find something else to do with the rest of that floral fabric!
Thanks for stopping by.
