I've already made 4 covers... that's probably enough and thought I could use them in a new project ...
A patchwork pillow sounded fun...and since the scraps were 6"x5.5" I just trimmed them to 5.5" square, which when pieced together made a 16" square pillow. I laid out my pattern...
then stitched each stripe
making sure to iron open each seam
I sewed all three stripes, then lined up the individual
seams and sewed the stripes together
then, just take the 16" square and sew it to a solid backing,
insert hidden zipper in bottom seam and stuff with a pillow form.
Too cute and very nautical!
