Today I’m sharing my Pottery Barn Inspired Americana Pillow with you. I’ve always been a big Pottery Barn Fan so when I saw their American Flag Patchwork Pillow for $39.50 I knew I could knock it off for less. Here's how I made this for $2.

If you know me than you know I LOVE holidays by now and I love to change my décor and pillows for them.

I found a pillow sham for $2 and I had some red star fabric so this pillow cost me $2 to make.

I love to go Thrift Shopping and you can find great fabrics and things for your home.

I cut the Blue & White Stripe Fabric 12″ x 12″ and the red stars 6.5″ x 4″

For the back, I cheated a little by using the back of the pillow sham because I love the little ties on the red n white dots. You can just cut a square in your favorite fabric to make it easier.

Then I pinned my Red Stars patch in the center and began sewing. I sewed around the edges and criss crossed the center twice because I like the look of double stitches.
I wasn’t crazy about the pinking sheared edges so I cut them straight and then made lots of little snips so it has that frayed edge look.

I then pinned and sewed the right sides of the pillow cover together. Before I turned it inside out I cut the corners so that when I turn it my corners are nice.

I pressed it and then inserted my Pillow inside. Were you thinking this pillow looks familiar?? It’s the back of my Anthropologie Inspired Pillow and you can see it here.
