Handmade Patriotic, Americana, and 4th of July  Projects & Ideas To Make and Sew


Easy to sew raggedy primitive americana flag pillow.

I could not believe the price of this raggedy flag pillow when I saw it for sale in a cute little antique shop at one of the New Jersey beaches for $39.99. This project can be made in less than an hour, and for less than $3.00 by using strips of scrap fabric, and craft stuffing or left over quilt batting for stuffing. What's great about this project is that all fabrics are ripped and sewn on for the "ragged" look on this primitive Americana Raggedy Flag Pillow!

Free Americana Patriotic Sewing Project Idea:

How to Make a Raggedy Quilt Flag Pillow

You will Need:
-2 cream pieces of fabric ripped to the size of 14" x 18"
-1 piece of blue fabric ripped to the size of 9.5" x 6.5"
-3 strips of red fabric ripped to the size 10" x 1.5"
-3 strips of red fabric ripped to the size 18" x 1.5"
-craft stuffing or left over quilt batting
-basic sewing supplies

If you are looking for an even more primitive look, follow one of these methods and coffee-stain your ripped fabrics before you begin sewing them together!


Pin It

This Americana Primitive raggedy flag pillow is easy to make with it's ripped fraying edges showing. Since this is a primitive raggedy flag pillow make sure that all edges of your fabric are ripped and fraying. This is the look we want for this project.

Place all the strips and blue rectangle on top of one of the cream pieces of fabric to see how your flag will look.

Simply sew on red strips of fabric to make this cute American flag raggedy pillow. Pin all the red strips PRETTY SIDE UP on ONE of the PRETTY SIDES of the cream pieces of fabric. This will be the pillow front.

Sew down each side of the long ends of each strip using the pressure foot as your guide.

I love the way the edges of the fabric are torn and fraying on this primitive American flag pillow. Pin the blue rectangle fabric on the top left of the pillow front, just covering the red strips.

Sew around the blue rectangle pivoting at the corners using the pressure foot as your guide.

You can make this awesome ragged american flag pillow in less than an hour. Pin the pillow top to the pillow back around the outer edge as shown with the wrong sides together. Sew around the outer edge using a 1/2" seam allowance. Leave a 4" opening to stuff the pillow.

Stuff the pillow with craft stuffing or fiber filling. (I use ripped up left over quilt batting!)

This primitive flag pillow is so easy to make with it's ripped fraying edges! Either by hand or on the sewing machine, stitch the 4" opening closed.

To make the raggedy flag pillow more "ragged" you can pull loose threads of the fabric!

Your raggedy primitive patriotic flag pillow is done!
