Red Pillow


I made a pillow to go in my new chair.  I thought the black and white could use a punch of red.  The pillow is made of red wool suiting, so no fraying the unfinished edges.  I made a zipper closure on the back to easily change it out when I am in need of a change.  The pillow is 12 x 16 and went together really fast.  I cut two inch strips, gathered them, then stitched them on to a plain background square.  I am happy with the way it turned out!

Well, you must know by now that I love red. This pillow is gorgeous. I keep wanting to make similarly fun pillows (in other colors, though) for the kids' rooms. I'm impressed that you did. = )

I used to love to make pillows. I had tons of patterns from a Family Circle magazine but it sounds like this one went together very quickly. Keep up the good work. It looks wonderful!
