I’ve been spotting some fun ways to use a stripe and not in a traditional vertical or horizontal position. Placed at various diagonals, the simple stripe can be turned into something new and interesting. For my latest Laura Ashley project, I thought it would be fun to take their awning stripe and try it in a new way for a unique throw pillow.

Materials: Laura Ashley striped fabric, scissors, thread, iron, sewing machine, pillow stuffing.
Step 1: Cut out fabric in squares with different grain lines. I made my pillow 20″ x 20″
Step 2: Press squares in half and then cut on the crease. Fold, press, and cut one of the pieces again.
Step 3: Arrange fabric how you want to sew it. Play with the different grains.
Step 4: Sew together. I pressed the seams open and then edge stitched on either side of the seam.
Step 5: Repeat 1-4 for back of pillow.
Step 6: Sew together front and back leaving a small hole.
Step 7: Stuff and hand sew small hole.
Step 8: Enjoy!
