I {Heart} Ribbon

of my favorites, so I decided to turn them into a pillow!
1. Cut a square of *backing* fabric to 11 X 11, I just used plain white cotton.
2. Cut many 11" ribbon strips - this would depend on the width of your ribbon. I think I have 24 strips - the pillow is in California right now so I was trying to count off the picture!
3. Glue the strips down to the backing fabric using a glue stick. Allow to dry.
4. Machine stitch each length of ribbon in place.
5. Cut another square of fabric (11 X 11)...for this one I used a fancier one as it will be exposed on the back.
6. With right sides together machine stitch around the square, leaving a 1/4" border. Also, remember to make sure to leave a hole to add stuffing ;)
7. Clip the corners, turn rightside out, stuff, hand sew up that stuffing hole, and your done!

Inspiration for this came from a Christmas
card sent by Fiona Carter!

What's a bigger word than inspire? You WAY MORE than inspire me!!! That pillow is beautiful...and what do we always say as mothers, wives, scrapbookers: "Oh, I don't have time." Well I am certainly going to MAKE time for that project. I LOVE it!!! You inspire me to make time.
