Armed with my sewing machine, a few squares of fabric and a roll of burlap ribbon, I had this sweet little pillow whipped up in less than 15 minutes!

I began by measuring my pillow, then cutting two squares of fabric – 1 square was 2″ larger than my pillow measurement and one the same 2″ larger on one side, but 8″ larger on the other. Finally, I cut that larger piece in half length wise, overlapping one side by 6″ so that it made a square the same size as my smaller piece.

And ran a simple stitch about one inch from the edge, all around the outside of my pillow. Because I wanted a less polished look, I didn’t bother leaving an opening to turn it all right-side out.

With my pillowcase made, I started on my burlap ruffle. After snipping off the finished edge, I simply started tugging on one of the strings about 1/3 of the way down the ribbon, working the burlap into a ruffle as I pulled.

Then, once I had a ruffle long enough to make it all around my pillow, I simply started sewing it on, right over top of the stitching I’d already done.

Using a length of ribbon made such quick work of this part and even better, the finished edges on either side of my ruffle will ensure that my burlap stays in tact over time.

  2. Kristen. Love the pillow but am also in love with the wall treatment behind the headboard wall. Is that wallpaper. OR senciled. DO you mind sharing your resources. Thank you!

I can't wait to hear your thoughts?
