Think Ruffles Day1 - Kona White Ruffled pillow

I welcome you all to Day1 of Think Ruffles blog hop organized by amazing Mdm Sam @SewWeQuilt and our amazing cheer leader Amy @SewIncrediblyCrazy blog. I wanted to thank both Mdm Sam and Amy for this wonderful blog hop.

Now peak at my project, a ruffled pillow with zipper.
I have been wanting to make ruffles for a while and had one particular pillow in mind, V & Co's white ruffle pillow. I made mine with white Kona Cotton. The strips for the ruffles are 1.5inches. The finished pillow cover is 12"x18".

Oh..Ruffles...Ruffles...


This time around I even got to add a zipper. Yay for me! I saw this video on zipper and it just made it so much more simpler to add a zipper to any project.

Oh My, these ruffles are addictive

Do you see the snow outside the window?

Ruffles smiling for the camera - isn't that too bright ;) ?

This was a super fun project and I already got another request for ruffles from my daughter, she wants a white skirt for the summer. Exactly same ruffles :-)


Here is the schedule for today. I hope you enjoy seeing on these wonderful ruffles projects.

  12. Very good idea, a ruffled pillow! I love white, but with 3 boys at home, no chance it will keep as white for more than 1 hour.... but I see you also have a boy,...... no fear?
    Well done!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Great ruffled pillow , it looks great on your sofa !

    ReplyDelete
  45. What a great pillow. I think because it is a neutral it would go with so many different styles! It could soften a really cool palette, geometric themed room or inject a little whimsy into a more traditional style. Just lovely!

    ReplyDelete
  46. The white ruffles on that pillow are perfect. What a great design. You just can't go wrong with a ruffled pillow and white is so close to my heart. Great job.

  52. How wonderful to make an all white ruffled pillow. It is gorgeous. No wonder you want to make more ruffles!

    ReplyDelete
  53. A very classic pillow with the white ruffles. And how smart using a precut that the edges are pinked. You don't have to finish all those strips of ruffles.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Love how you did those. Easy. Thanks for showing.

    ReplyDelete
  55. That double ruffle is adorable on the pillow. I can just see the pillow tucked up on a big bed all decked out in white bedding and with lots of other ruffled pillows, too.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Can't go wrong with a crisp, clean, white pillow with ruffles. Very elegant looking. Your little quilting model is adorable.

    ReplyDelete
  57. A real wonder in white. I don't think there is anything that says crisp and clean like white ruffles (think little girly pinafores).
