Ruffle Pillow

Remember this cute ruffle pillow made from a t-shirt? Well, here is the tutorial. Enjoy!!

You’ll need:

  • an XL t-shirt (or larger)
  • rotary cutter, mat, and ruler
  • fiber fill or some sort of stuffing

Step 1: lay t-shirt flat on cutting mat. Cut hem off bottom of t-shirt and straighten sides out (if needed).

Trim off hem

straighten out sides

Step 2:  cut a 14×14 square through both layers of the t-shirt. These squares form the front and back of the pillow.

Step 3: trim off sleeves and use remaining t-shirt fabric to cut strips about 1 1/4 inch wide by 21 (or so) inches long.

Step 4: lay out strips on pillow top to determine how many ruffles you want. I wanted 10 for mine.

Step 5: set your machine to a really long stitch (called a basting stitch). Sew down the center of each strip, leaving a tail of thread, and making sure to NOT reverse stitch on either end.

Step 6: lay strips back on pillow where you’d like them (with the bobbin thread side facing down). Pin ends in place (it makes the next step easier).

Step 7: Ruffle time! Gently pull the bobbin thread (the thread on the bottom) to create the ruffle. Spread the ruffle across the entire strip and pin in place. Repeat for each strip.

Ruffle time!

Step 8: set your machine back to a regular (or slightly smaller than regular) stitch length. Sew down the center of each ruffle (right on top of the baste stitch).

Step 9: pin pillow front to pillow back, with ruffles inside. Tip: to make sure you don’t sew the ruffle in the side seam, pin bottom-most and top-most ruffles to the side.

Step 10: sew front to back, leaving a 4-5 inch gap on one side. Trim corners. Flip right side out. Stuff.

EDIT: This is also the point where I would use a lint roller to get off all the tiny little balls of fabric that are everywhere…

Step 11: pin opening closed and hand sew shut.

I would show you the finished product, but I actually gave it away before I took a picture… but trust me, it was cute. :)

    I uncovered these truffles terrible, I enable

    Leather-based skirts are as common as they have at any time
    been. And the reason is almost certainly for the reason that they are a functional
    merchandise of apparel. For case in point, they change in size from micro to mini to just above the knee to below the knee.
    In a amount of situations, the software of leather was even extended to trousers and add-ons as properly.
    Leather trousers ended up then viewed as to be sizzling
    and girls were also quick to go by this growth. Black leather-based trousers with belts that had whopping shiny buckles grew to become a fashion
    statement especially with the youth..

    There is no purpose by any means for Lois Lane, who admittedly showed up for five times of faculty,
    to be expecting to be remembered as a college student there.

    Guaranteed, Lois was a military services brat, so she grabs on to the Smallville Significant section of
    her lifetime and most likely romanticizes it for
    more than it was, but I know the sensible Lois Lane would never expect a
    group of youthful adults who knew every single other for the
    initial 18 many years of their lives to bear in mind considerably if just about anything about the five days they may well or could not have found some new chick wandering the halls.

    fabric or beading. In addition to cost considerations,
    however, it can also be difficult to determine
    what others actuaally need and the best platforms for getting it to
    them. In most department stores, you will find the best deals of everything when thee products are out of season. Sometimes it is possible to
