Hi y'all!
Y'all?? I'm Canadian so don't ask me where the y'all came from. 
My name is Heather and I'm a craftaholic. 
I have a little blog called Twin Dragonfly Designs where I share my addiction to sweet recipes and epic craft projects {with a dash of twin three year olds in the mix}. 
I am the lone girl in our house full of boys.  Every once in awhile I like to sneak a ruffle or two into our decor.  Here's how you can too...
1. Cut scraps of cotton material into 1" strips and sew a straight stitch {using your loosest setting} right down the middle.
2. Then pull on the bottom thread to create a ruffle.
3. Tape off the ends of your ruffles to hold the thread in place while you work with the rest.
4. Play with your ruffle placement.
5. Pin all of your ruffles to your pillow front.
6. Then sew them onto your pillow {be sure to switch your sewing machine back to your normal setting}.
7. Come up with a clever way to disguise your ruffled pillow in a house full of boys.... ah ha!  Seaweed!
A perfect pillow for a little boys Pirate Room.  Oooo I made the reverse applique Pirate Skull Pillow too, but that's a tutorial for another day!  Thanks for checking it out!
Please stop by Twin Dragonfly Designs sometime to say hi!
Thanks for having me Tam, I really appreciate it {you're totally forgiven ;) }!

What a fun pillow - good spin on the ruffles being seaweed.
 Thanks Heather!
