Prairie style American Flag pillow covers and Tilda's World new blog

Spring is almost here, despite those darn white patches of snow on the ground!  My spring muse has inspired me to design some soft colored rustic pillow covers.  Just listed on Etsy, these have a subtle American flag design, with a little heart in the upper left corner instead of the expected group of stars.


The heart showcases a silver embroidered star patch:

This pillow cover has hand-embroidered red 'stripes', for a quilted affect:


The next photo is of the first pillow cover I made of this design, and I'm debating if I want to keep or sell it:


I used some of Tone Finnanger's Tilda's World fabrics on these pillow covers, and I love their faded soft look.  Speaking of Tilda's World....there's a new blog showcasing the latest and greatest of all things Tilda!
Make sure you take a look here.

Susan,
Your pillows are soooooo cute! Love them. I just made a pink Union Jack pillow. The first one turned out so pretty I made another to match.
Haven't visited in a while so I read several of your previous posts. Just picked up a copy of the newest Shabbilicious mag. Thanks for including the link. Can't wait to get it.
Always enjoy my visits here.
Love and hugs.

How lovely. I really like the design on both but the second one with the hand stitched stripes just calls out to me. Wonderful job.

Pretty pillows, Susan! I love the floral you used for the hearts. I was drawn to the faded look of it right away. I like this twist on a flag! : )

Heather said...

Oooh, I LOVE these!! The fabrics are so beautiful and i love their vintage tones. As spring comes, I've felt the need to lighten up as well. Actually, after living in this house a few months, I've decided it has a 'lighter' vibe, and I've been switching things around to more pale tones. I thought "I need to go to Susan's blog and get some inspiration!" so here I am! :D
