2012 London Summer Olympics

Are you all ready for the Opening Ceremonies tonight? I am!

It was a complete accident that I started and finished these pillows in time for the Olympics. I am completely obsessed with any thing union jack and British, so when I saw this pattern I knew I had to make one up. A simple granny square pillow is the perfect companion for this sweet pillow.

The union jack pillow is backed with red and white polka dot cotton in an envelope style. The granny square also has an envelope back, but it is done out of poly/cotton blend fabric.

Tomorrow I have some big news to share with all of you. If you want a hint check out my blog's sidebar!
Happy Olympics!
