Zig Zag Pillow

I had originally started this project with the intentions of making the Zig Zag Tote in my Zakka Style Book. I so badly wanted to participate in the first week of the Zakka Style Sew Along but my machine was in the shop. So I went ahead and started on the first project anyway, even though they're on their second week. I was not pleased with the way my zig zags were turning out. I was getting frustrated because I had no idea what I was doing wrong, my measurements were all off, and I was pissed that I was wasting my precious FMF fabric. Against my better judgement, I proceeded and ended up making a 16" pillow instead. The points aren't perfect, but I didn't mind them so much after I quilted it.








Fabrics used:
- Robert Kaufman, Quilter's Linen in Beige
- Denyse Schmidt, Flea Market Fancy in Eyelet Pink
- Denyse Schmidt, Flea Market Fancy in Posie Turquoise

Oh, how I adore linen. They have such a fabulous texture and Robert Kaufman's collection has so many beautiful colors. I ended up loving the pillow and it now sits proudly on my sofa among all my other pretty spring pillows.

I'll be linking up to these parties.

  13. Bonnie, I know this is my second comment, but I had to share that you inspired me to try (without the book) a zig zag bag. It appears, I need the directions becaue mine flopped. Maybe I'll try again tomorrow.
