The inspiration for today's pillow came from a beautiful blouse in Alicia's closet. Taking ideas from garment construction is a fun way to incorporate unique techniques and embellishments into your home décor. We used the softness of double-layer ruffles to create romance-in-the-round on this beautiful neckroll pillow. An overcasting stitch finishes the raw edges， adding to the shabby chic design. When you see this raw-edge effect on garmentsaccent pillow case baby floor， it's often been done with a serger and what's called a 'lettuce edge.' We show you how to create a similar effect with your sewing machine. We pre-washed our tissue linen fabric and scrunched it slightly to a give the pillow its slightly distressed texture and antique feel. The shape is a 6" x 20" pillow insert； you could alter the size， but you'd want to refigure the number and width of the ruffle strips.
We used a Soft Touch？ 6" x 20" neckroll insert by Fairfield. This shape is also available in a 9" x 20" and a 9" x 14".？We can't stress enough how important it is that your pillow projects use quality inserts or fillers. The difference in the finished look is dramatic.？personalized grandpa gifts

Promising review: "These are so much fun! We ordered the small size, which fits standard hardback books (approximately 5–7 hardbacks in my experience). They're a great way to add some extra storage to our very small home, and we've placed them in our hallway so people ask us about them all the time." —LaBuenaVidaMere
