Easy Rag Pillow


"Pillows are a perfect project to learn a new sewing method. They’re small and quick to make. As a quilter, I love making pillows to try out a new quilt idea.

This rag pillow project is all about the surface texture that seems to be so popular in interior designer boutiques right now. Plus, you’ll love the super simple rag seam technique that makes finishing this pillow a breeze. This is a very simple pillow to make that you can probably finish in an afternoon.

The idea is to sew narrow strips of fabric onto your pillow to create the dimensional frayed design. You choose whether your strips will be the same or contrasting fabrics. Once you begin to sew, you’ll be surprised how quickly you’ll be finished!"
