Star and Stripes Pillow

Use red, white and blue fabric scraps with exposed seams to give a patriotic pillow a chenille look. A yellow star embellishment turns this pillow into an homage to the American flag. Homemade 4th of july decorations are a great way to decorate your home, from Sizzix

Great idea! My 87 yo dad just built a room to house all his WW II memorabilia. This pillow will look great on his leather sofa!
