Rock Star Bed Pillow…the Chic Rock Star Glam Bedroom Make-over Continues

Chic Rock Star Glam Bed Pillow

In researching ideas for my “Chic Rock Star Glam” bedroom make-over, I kept coming across images of the British flag (or Union Jack), which I like very much. It has sort of a mod, punk-rock feel, but I wanted to “chic” it up a bit, make it my own, and of course, make it myself.

Believe me, I am no seamstress. I can barely sew a straight line, so the design had to be simple. I had a large piece of magenta ultra-suede left over from an old project. I used that as the base. I had a large pillow that used to be on the bed back in the old “Purple” days. I pulled the pillow out of the old purple case and used it to measure for the new ultra-suede pillow. I then used fabric scraps left over from the new curtains I sewed for the bedroom (more on that in a future blog post). I cut them into strips and ironed the edges under. I played around with the design until I liked it, then pined the strips to the ultra-suede, and started sewing. It was all simple, straight-line work.

I really like the result. Even my musician-man digs it. Is it perfect? Heck no, (I would not be getting an “A” from the sewing teacher) but it works and is just the sort of look I was going for. It took about 2 hours, and was basically free, as I used bits of fabric I already had.

The rest of the “Chic Rock Star Glam” bedroom projects are on the way!
