At the end of each day, I walk around the house gathering up all of the pillows and arranging them back on the couch. In our house we have many, many throw pillows – all handmade – some that were given to us and some that I’ve made myself.
Those pillows never stay on the couches though. They somehow migrate into the boys’ bedrooms where they are well-loved and used. A few end up in the basement where they were used as shields, land mines, or bases.
I’m hoping that with all of the ruffles and the wood buttons this pillow will be less desirable to the kids and will maybe stay put. What are my odds, do you think?
This adorable ruffled pillow was one of my quick projects from last week. The pillow pattern comes from an Adornit book called “Long Live Vintage”.
It was fun to make ruffles again. I think it has to be at least four years or so since I’ve ruffled anything! It just doesn’t happen that often in a house with so many boys.
The backing is a simple envelope closure which is my favorite way to do pillow backs.
For now the pillow is part of a display at a local fabric shop but I’m looking forward to adding her to our Christmas décor this year.
