Make One for Yourself or to Give!
Honor the memory of a loved one or simply repurpose unused ties by turning them into this wonderful pillow cover. It’s also a nice retirement gift, Father’s Day gift, or a surprise to celebrate a career change.
You’ll need eight to sixteen ties plus a background fabric to set them off. Traditionally, the ties would be set against a white or off-white background
However, coordinating prints give the pillow an updated look and can be chosen to match the personality of the owner of the ties. Solid cotton and linen also work nicely in whatever color works best with the ties.
Notice the button center in this pillow by @secondbunny1.
The pillow cover top can also be finished into a small quilt for a table or wall. Add borders, or not, to achieve the size you want.
Once completed, the pillow cover designed by Heather Butler from Stay Little Sewing is 18″ x 18″.
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).
