Ruffle Pillow

First off, pardon the horrible yelloweee picture below.
I don't usually get my creative juices rolling until after dark when the kids are in bed.
Hence the horrible lighting.
Anyway, ruffle pillows are EVERYWHERE nowadays.
If you are wanting new pillows for anywhere in your home, there are so many amazing tutorials out there.
Pillows make any room feel cozier.
I was in the mood for a ruffle pillow for my little two year old's room.
So following THIS awesome tutorial from House of Smith's, I started on my new journey with ruffles.

I didn't follow her instructions exactly...

I didn't pin my ruffles as I went I just kind of tucked each ruffle under one layer at a time and sewed right down the middle.
I left my edges raw and didn't hem them because that's the look I was going for.
...that and it was late and I was feeling a little lazy...lol.

I didn't have an insert for my pillow, and I wanted to stick with just using what I already had.
So I snagged an extra pillow (that never got used) out of my daughters closet, cut it open, and used that pillow's stuffing to stuff my new pillow.


Here it is on my little girls bed.  Since transferring her out of a crib about a month ago, I still have no idea how I'm going to decorate her room or what kind of bedding I'm going to use. 
Any cute suggestions are welcome!

...by the way, I'm not a very experienced sewer AT ALL but this project turned out to be pretty easy.
So if you're interested in ruffles, go give it a try! 
You'll be amazed with what you can create!

My sewing machine is a Singer and it is definitely vintage. It was actually my husband's grandmothers machine and was handed down to me. I believe she was given the machine when she got married! It's really heavy and solid and works like a charm! I love it!!!
