A Union Jack pillow! Is it not perfect!?!
In true Make Do And Mend spirit this is made entirely from repurposed things already lying around the house!
The gloriousness of it all just overwhelms me.
I sewed strips and triangles onto a plain white cotton (former gigantic pillowcase) for the Crosses of Saint Andrew and Saint George. I clipped the edges and threw it in the washing machine to fray them up nicely and then embroidered for the Cross of Saint Patrick. Of course I did this to avoid having to piece the whole thing together, but I think I'll maintain that I was going for a rustic look.
