One night last weekend I decided I wanted to make another pillow cover while the kids were all watching a movie. I sat and stared at the drop cloth scraps trying to decide what to make. I tried Googling for ideas but could not find exactly what I was looking for.
I knew I had seen a pillow like this some place. Duh....
Today I was looking at Pottery Barns website, (Did I mention I like Pottery Barn?)
and there it was. I did not make my ruffle strip long enough to be gathered.
So it is not gathered. Gathering the corners would have been MUCH easier than the reverse box pleat that I used.
My pillow opens like an envelope in the back.
It was an easy project with minimal finishing.
I must say I am enjoying pulling my sewing machine out now and again.
Now, one of these days I need to get crazy and get out an exacto knife and some freezer paper
and make some stencils.
