Pretty Fabric and Lace Make a Sweet Pillow |
Create Your Own Version Starting with Beautiful Lace or Trim!
Vintage crocheted lace found in an antique store, still attached to a band of linen, was the inspiration for this pretty pillow. Patchwork from 2 1/2″ squares, buttons and a memorable fabric round out the materials used in the this project.
The finished pillow brings to mind the adage that “The whole is greater than the sum of its parts.” And beautifully so.
While you may not find the exact same fabrics and it’s unlikely you’ll locate the same lace, you can make your own beautiful and unique pillow with the parts you do locate.
Start with lace or another pretty trim, then decide on colors for the patchwork. Choose a beautiful fabric to display the lace against and buttons to complete the mix.
The designer, Taunja at Carried Away Quilting, shows us a second pillow she made for Christmas using the same elements. Notice how this version has a bound edge instead of the turned finish of the first pillow. Learn more about the Christmas pillow here.
A second Christmas pillow has a very festive look. Learn more here. The fabric is “Jingle Birds” by Keiki for Moda Fabrics, which you can find here (while supplies last).
The instructions are for a pillow cover that fits a 12″ x 16″ pillow form.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
