So I’ve been on a bit of a pillow
Making pillow covers
check out the raggedy (totally intentional raggedyness) ruffle detail on this one that makes it a little less
(ha ha - you like that pun?):
I have a secret to share about the pillow cover above…the linen cutie with the white polka dots.
Wanna know where that started?
It started out life as a package of napkins on clearance from our fav store with orangey red clearance stickers.
I simply washed them up,
pinned them right sides together on three sides
(leaving the top open)
cut a bit of vintage ribbon with my pinking shears
(to avoid fray action…)
and sewed these ribbons to the top
(hooray – didn’t have to worry about finishing this edge because it was already hemmed because they are NAPKINS, after all!)
plopped my pillow form in, tied up the ties and voila
and, of course, this other addition to the pillow collection -
so chic don’t you think? -
or is it chick? ha!
And I’m just enjoying them so much!
Such an easy, inexpensive way to
make a room look
new for almost nothing!
