DIY ruffle pillows


Ruffles Anyone?

Maddy's gray walls needed a bit of pink fluffy fluff.

So I started with a travel size pillow insert.


And a neckroll insert.


I gathered up some petal pink sheer fabric and ruffled away!


Once I had all of my ruffles made I pinned them on.


Round n round...I go~


For the travel size pillow I just did one ruffle down each side.


You know those huge pillows at Wal Mart for just a few bucks?

I think Maddy's came in a bright aqua for 6.00.

Well...I bought a HUGE pillow case from Target  (3.00) to cover that bad boy up.

Problem was it was just too plain...

So I pinched and tucked a few diamond shaped do'dads

like this..


And it turned out like this!


I saw one just like it at Target for 25.00.
The only difference were small white buttons.
Maddy didn't want the buttons so that made it extra easy ;)


And the fun began!

I started layer after layer..

The two square pillows in front of   "Pinch n tuck" came from a sweet blog friend.



Then came single ruffle guy



Time for Puff Daddy!


love love love 



After looking at the pictures, I think I may add a small pinch n tuck on each end

of the neckroll.

The sheer fabric I used has started to fray a bit...

Love it!

It almost looks like feathers ;)

  4. I agree on the "All You Need Is Love Love Is All You Need" sign. It was the first one that came to mind when I thought of your artwork. I love the "Page & Palette" sign, too, that you recreated for TLC. The Sealtest Milk Producer sign is way cool, too. I'd be honored to have any of them!

    Cute pillows. Love the captions on your post too. Too funny. Maddy's room is going to be quite the young, elegant teen room. It's going to be lovely when you are done. Loving all the feminine touches.
