Patriotic Pillows

The 4th of July is just around the corner so I thought I would add a bit of patriotic decor to our petite cottage...

I've been busy making these cute flag inspired pillows.

Aren't they cute?

I love that they're in cream and khaki...Perfect colors for my decor plus this way I can keep them out all year round.

I even made a couple to put up on my Etsy shop. I'll be putting them up soon...

So what do you think?



Hugs and Kisses,

Hi Ana,
I love them.....How creative of you. I am almost done with my king size quilt and then I can start on another sewing project. I can't wait.
Your sweet pillows will be flying out of the Fedex drivers hands in no time.
Tomorrow my tile guy is ripping out the back splash in the kitchen, repairing the wall and installing the new tile we choose. I can't wait to see it all done.
Have a sweet day and keep creating beautiful things.
Big hugs, Elizabeth

Wow Ana, those are very pretty! I have a question about the ruffled pillow, do you hem the edges of the ruffles or do you leave them with out hem.
Have a lovely day!

VERY creative, Ana. Even though I am not from your country, I can appreciate them. I wonder how they would look with the Canadian flag? Hmmm.
