A few weeks go, I finished a Ruffle Flower Pillow using a kit from Etsy. I loved it, but the felt was scratchy and made my face sweat. In other words, it was not couch nap-worthy.
I have a lot of old tee shirts hanging around that I always mean to use for projects. I thought one of them would make the perfect pillow. I was right!
The fabric is from my Maker Faire NYC volunteer tee shirt. It's a size XXL, so I had plenty of fabric to work with! The white logo made for some interesting bits of color in the ruffle.
I modeled the pattern after the Ruffle Flower Pillow except that instead of sewing one long ruffle and winding it into a flower, I made little strips of ruffles. I was inspired by a pillow that Tricia from Oh So Crafty made out of an old tee shirt and a men's dress shirt.
It only took about 2 hours to make, and that's with me sewing the pillow together on the wrong side, ripping it out, and doing it over. (Oops.)
I must admit, it looks pretty good on the couch with my Ruffle Flower Pillow! Nap time!
