Here's a little pillow and book I whipped up yesterday. Ruffles out of vintage linens always makes me happy. The pillow took some time though. I think next time I'll make bigger ruffles so I have to make less of them. I want to buy a ruffler attachment for my machine but every time I go to buy one they are out. Ugh always something.
I think I have eight rows of ruffles which makes this pillow super fluffy. It is also a slip with a feather insert which makes it even more yummy. The little book is just two old thrift store book that I tore the covers off of. I wrapped it up with old seam binding, made little fabric flowers, netting and crystals left over from Em's wedding.
Since it was old linen I really didn't cut the fabric much just measured and ripped. (Yes I need to buy a sewing measure tape) Ruffled then pinned each layer on. I chose to pin and then sew each layer. I think it's easier this way I always have a problem with pins falling out it when I try to pin all the layers on.
Can't tell you enough how good this pillow feels? Does that sound weird? Not like it's a living thing or is it? The ole girl does have alot of personality and I definitely can relate to her fluffiness.
