Flag pillow

I saw a flag pillow on Pinterest that I wanted for my front porch chair. Since it was going outside I didn't want to spend any money or too much time on it.. So...I got out my glue gun. First I sewed a rectangle shape from osnaburg ( thick muslin like fabric.) I cut a small rectangle from navy fabric and glued it to the top left corner..Then I used some red and white fabrics that I cut in strips and glued on like stripes.


After I got all the stripes on I cut another navy rectangle and glued it over the first so it stood out more. I cut 4 stars from the white fabric and glued them on. The whole thing took about 40 minutes start to finish.

I need a nice white wicker chair to sit this pillow on.. I am determined to find one at an estate sale or garage sale !

love this chicken planter ..I got it at the Kane county fairgrounds flea market last year.

 

Thanks for coming by !

Hi Priscilla,
I found your blog through Barbara at Made in K-Town and now I'm a follower. I love your flag pillow! How clever to glue on the scraps instead of sewing! I can't sew but I can work a glue gun. If you'd like to visit my blog, it's sssinthesun.blogspot.com.
Blessings,
Kate
