The 12 x 16" pillow is my go-to sham size. I've made many over the years — some embroidered, one covered in buttons sewn on by hand. The Fourth of July has always been one of my favorite holidays — that and Thanksgiving — so I thought a festive little star pillow was in order.
This denim pillow has 14 appliquéd stars and a hidden zipper closure. For the full tutorial, please visit the Sizzix blog here.
One of my favorite Fourth of July memories is the yearly party at my Aunt and Uncle's house in Pennsylvania. It was always a day of badminton, volleyball, popsicles, sparklers, catching fireflies and a drive around the neighborhood in the family's antique 1926 fire truck, waving at neighbors who'd seen it all before. What's your favorite thing about the Fourth of July?
