Hey Everyone! Welcome to my new blog. For years I was on Blogspot as Ribbonwoodcottage.blogspot.com and it was wonderful while it lasted.
It served its purpose. And I met a lot of amazing people during my time there. I’ve moved to WordPress for a variety of reasons. And I’m excited to start my blog off with a Free Pattern for all of you!
I want to share a simple giveaway pattern for you. I decided to share this easy pattern for making a small (dollhouse miniature size) pillow for upcoming holidays. I don’t know about you but I love to look at upscale catalogs and look at their gorgeous rooms that are decorated for each season. I kept coming across wonderful pillows on beds and couches. It seemed like a simple idea to have the look with the right fabrics, yet easy enough to make in an hour. And that is what this pattern does.
To purchase the pattern for the dollhouse bedding you see in the photo above (which is very easy to make) go here @ https://www.etsy.com/shop/RibbonwoodCottage?ref=hdr_shop_menu&search_query=star+quilt
The key is to use navy with stars fabric for the flag corner, and red and white, or red and cream striped fabric for the other part of the flag. Here are the directions:
FLAG ACCENT PILLOW
Cut 2 rectangles from red and cream ticking fabric, or one in a different backing fabric.
2” x 2 1/2”
Cut one 1 1/4” x 1 1/4” square from navy fabric with stars
Place the navy square in the top left hand side of the red rectangle fabric. Pin in place. Sew around the inside edge of the navy square attaching it to red fabric as shown in the photo.
The square fabric fits in the top left hand corner, sewn in place before the two pillow pieces are sewn together.
When making a pillow I always sew 3 sides (like a pillowcase looks, 3 sides sewn, one side open) and leave a small side (4th side) open. Turn right sides out, stuff, and sew closed. Place both rectangles together with right sides facing each other. Pin together.
These little flag pillows would be cute since they are so small to add a pin backing and worn as a little Patriotic embellishment on clothes during the Summer season!
Sew around three sides, leaving one side open. Turn right sides out, and work on corners with a straight pin to be pointy.
Stuff with a very small amount of stuffing. Turn raw edges in 1/4”, pin and then hand sew closed.
Thank you for dropping by!
