Shabby Ruffled Pillow-Easy DIY

One day while thrifting I came upon the sweetest ruffled shirt.  
I pondered what to do with it...knowing it looked like something
to be worn in a Romantic Cottage.
 I laid it out and decided to cut it into a rectangle shape.  Off with the sleeves, collar and rounded hem.

I sewed it together, stuffed it with the softest filling and put it on my favorite cottage red chair.
 Yep it is sweet and romantic.  I'm on the lookout now for more ruffled shirts and even skirts  Who knows what soft romantic things could be made from all those premade (1980's) ruffles.
