Sweet Vintage Linen Pillows

It all starts with a snowy day....

You're a bit board
{and don't want to do housework...which is what you should be doing...}
So you decide to 
start a project!



You know...those projects in your project room you haven't started yet ;)

So...you grab those nifty vintage linen napkins you've been saving...
and that old chenille bedspread and you cut
and cut
and cut


Then you sew those two together
and sew
and sew
and sew


and stuff....
{you get the point...we're making a LOT of pillows here!}


 A little slip stitch at the bottom....


and put them in the
FINISHED
pile

{did you hear that...FINISHED!}


 Well...
finished with this project at least!


Join us this week over at Ivy and Elephants for What's it Wednesday!
{where there's always something fun & creative going on there!!}

You guys got any fun projects you are starting or finishing today?

Great job, love the vintage linens. Funny how we never do what we are supposed to when the weather isn't great.

I just love vintage pillows and linens. I cannot sew but sure wish I could. I always used to hold onto my vintage tablecloths but now I use them and enjoy them.

LOL That is same material I used to make a skirt back in 4-H LOL
I loved the roses them ad now.

Lots of gals are puling out their vintage linens, maybe because all the snow is reminding them of their pretty white lines.
Wish I still had a chenille bedspread to cut up

These are so pretty...a lovely way to re-use vintage linens!

How lovely. I have a weakness for pillows, I'm afraid. I mean a SERIOUS, probably-needs-therapy weakness.
