Union Jack decor seems to be popping up all over the place. The trend is being displayed in the form of painted furniture, art prints, clothing, rugs, and pillows. There are many trends that I can't quite get into, that just aren't me. At first, I was pretty sure this was one of them. As the trend started to grow, I began seeing very creative uses of the union jack in home decor. Then I decided that I actually liked the style. But, there is just no place in my house for those red and blue colors. And then I started seeing the union jack in other colors including pink and neutral. The neutral concept is what really won me over. That would be perfect in my living room since I am going for a neutral, semi-rustic feel. I knew that I didn't want anything too large or too bold, so I decided a simple pillow would do the job. I designed my pillow using leftover linen-like material from another project. I made my stripes using two shades of burlap and a flour sack dish towel. I happened to have a pillow form that was the size I wanted so this project ended up costing me nothing at all. I was impressed with how such a small design could really add interest to a room.
