Shabby Union Jack Pillow

 I have wanted a shabby Union Jack pillow for ages, but knew it would clash with my old floral suite...

But not any more!!

Knocked this up today, twas easy peasy, just cut, pin and sew!

I left the edges of the fabric raw and used a blanket stitch on them..

On with the white!

...on with the big red cross and wha-la! 
so simple!

love it!!  :)!

Busy week of orders ahead but will be back soon ;)!

That looks great! I have one that came from Australia and was originally a tea towel, I made it into a pillow. It just doesn't go with my turquoise and red, or does it? I will have to try it. I love that pillow! If I can find your email address, I will email you the link so you can see it!
Hugs, Cindy

Oh Jen... I just LOVE it. You are so clever! It looks wondeerful on your lounge. I want one now too... I've been meaning to make some cushions for our lounge and we have a dark blue cord covered thing.. I think a couple of these would look great on it. Going to look for some fabric at the shop tomorrow. Thanks for the inspiration (again!!!!) xx
