Ruffle pillow

I showed you my new bedding a while back. But I got to thinking about my navy pillow and how expensive it was....so I took it back and decided I would make my own!

Ruffles have been everywhere in blogland and I think they make a cute pillow, don't you? So I went to Joann's and found some fabric for about $3.50 and made myself a pillow cover for a pillow I bought for $2.50 with a cover I didn't really love. (Pillow forms can be a bit pricy, so it was totally worth it, especially since I could pull the cover right off!)

It was sunny, if you couldn't tell!

The lighting downstairs isn't that great, but you can tell here that it is indeed NAVY.


I know it looks like, wham! Navy! But it pulls together all the blues. I cut off the quilt at the bottom of the bed that maybe would have helped you to see the full picture! Anyway, I'm quite pleased with my $6 pillow.

It does look fabulous- looks great here, but even better in person! Certainly looks store bought and I know it is better quality! Also- I like the new blog layout and the foot picture! Super cute!

So I posted a comment and then... I accidentally deleted it. great... Anyways, great pillow and love the ruffles! I think it's a perfect added color to your bedding. Also, I love the foot picture and now I think I want one with our family. Except I don't have that pretty of feet...
