1. Funny, I’ve been thinking of doing the same thing, but haven’t. Never mind making a tutorial about it!! Love it, but you know for it really to be a Jack you have to stick it on a boat ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. Love your interpretation of the Union flag ( Nicola I’m with you – can’t be a Union Jack if it’s not on a jack staff! ) I’m sure I’ve still got some of that Laura Ashley fabric somewhere, now where’s that box………

    • I know, I know, but if I called it a Union Flag pillow everyone would think of the American Civil War! Well, at least that’s what comes to mind for me. I hope all you good people of the UK will forgive me.

  3. Wow, this was a surprise! And the fabric looks much prettier transformed in the Union Jack. I am glad that you could find such a great use of the old charm pack.
    Was I three when I bought it? Cann’t remember now…

  4. Thank you so much for this tutorial, I have made 3 different cushions in different colourways and they all look fantastic. Guess what everyone is getting for Christmas !!

  5. Hi, really keen to make this but was wondering what seam allowance was used and if it was included in these measurements or added on extra?

    • Hi Hannah, I used a quarter inch seam and that was accounted for in my strips (so the 1.5″ strip will end up being 1″ when sewn together). However you may want to widen your strips if you have a bigger pillow form. Math….ewww!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  6. Just discovered your blog and LOVE IT!! This Union Jack cushion is awesome and I plan on making one for a pressie to give to my friend in ENgland.
