Union Flag love

Seems the new pillow craze is the Union Flag,

so I hopped on that Union Flag pillow bandwagon too!

Some have made stencils or sewed trim to create their pillows ~

I took the easy way out and used the image from The Graphics Fairy!

I printed the image on 8.5 x 14 fabric (iron freezer paper to the back of fabric method) 

~ sewed it on canvas and made it an envelope style pillow
~ stuffed with a 12 x 16 pillow form

Love the graphics and colors of the Union flag.

No stenciling, no measuring trim,
just print and a few stitches on the machine...easy!

Today I'm joining ~


  1. I just love, love, love your pillow! I noticed Restoration Hardware also had some union jack prints framed.


  2. Neat, neat pillow! Very smart! Hope you will stop by for a visit!

  3. Great job! This is really the in-thing...the whole British revival has been popping up a lot. I think your blog is very fun to read and I want to award you with the Versatile Blogger Award.
