Hey Crafty Allie Readers!
Happy Memorial Day!
Happy Memorial Day!
I'm so excited to be here sharing a patriotic red, white & blue envelope pillow with you today!
Although you probably don't have time to pull this project off before your cook out this afternoon (unless you're ambitious and have nothing else to do), you can make this easy pillow to decorate for Flag Day or July 4th which are both coming up soon.
Ok, so let's get to it!
I used a 18" x 18" pillow form. Measurements can be adjusted for smaller pillows.
2 strips red fabric: 3.5" x 19"
2 strips white fabric: 3.5" x 19"
1 strip blue fabric: 6.5" x 19"
2 blocks blue fabric: 12" x 19"
Embroider or stencil your design on the blue fabric strip. I found this embroidery pattern here.
Sew your strips together in a red, white, blue, white, red pattern. Use an iron and press your seams.
Next take your two blocks of 12" x 19" blue fabric and on the wrong side of each fold down 1/2 an inch along one of the 19" lengths.
Press. Fold down again.
Press. Stitch down.
Happy Memorial Day, everyone! Hope everyone is enjoying their day off!
This seam creates the finished edges of the envelope back of the pillow.
Now layer all of your pieces right sides together.
Pin in place. Sew around.
Trim your corners and excess. Turn inside out and stuff with your pillow form.
Now you have a new piece of patriotic decor to remind you of the freedom we have every day and the people who have sacrificed to make it so.
I'd love if you stopped by Gingerly Made sometime. You can follow me on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest too.
