Finished! Gathered Pillow

I finally got around to making my pillow for the Bloggers Pillow Party!  This pillow was inspired by the Gathered Clutch Tutorial by Anna at Noodlehead.  I've been wanting to make one of these for the longest time, but I've had other projects that have just been bossy as all heck and pushed this one out of the way.  So, I've decided to use the technique here to make a pillow instead! 

The main fabric I purchased at Joanne's in the remnants section.  I have no idea what the name of it is, or who designed it(sorry!).  The middle fabric is Monarch from the Del Hi fabric collection by Valori Wells for Free Spirit.  What a mouth-full!  It measures about 15"x16", although it was supposed to be 16" square- I'll blame the measuring mistake on this horrible virus I've been fighting.  That works, right?

Blogger's Pillow Party

Want to join in the fun, and maybe win some prizes (this month's prize is a 1/2 yard stack of Innocent Crush fabrics)?  Go here to participate.

PS.  I will get a post of the purse up soon.  I've just been horribly sick & had to get this pillow posted by this month's contest deadline!!


  1. Cool idea! I hadn't though of morphing the Gathered Clutch into something entirely different.

  2. I love your gathered pillow. I've had the same idea floating around in my mind for some time. Now I'm inspired. Thanks for sharing!
