Another tablecloth which I believe may be from the 1950's. The texture really reminds me of some of the flour sacks I have seen and touched, from that time period.
In this photo, I have made two pillows. The bluebird I drew on white cotton and painted it with acrylic paint. Then I edge it in green and white flower print. The large pillow behind it was two napkins that I found on clearance at a department store. These pillows are in my bedroom. Isn't fabric just beautiful?
These pillows were purchase at a thrift store (sponsored by an animal shelter-one of my favorites). One is neckroll and the other is homemade pillow of heavy navy fabric. I have a pattern to make a neckroll and plan to do it soon. This is one of my spare bedrooms.
This pillow is from the tablecloth I mentioned earlier. I used a plate for a pattern. I also saved the gold edging around the tablecloth and used it to edge the pillow. Behind the round pillow is one of two red pillows that I found at a thrift store. They were very clean and barely used (very important to Journaling Woman).
This pillow just represents a pillowcase, another alternative to reusing pillows that you have but want to make match your decor. This spare bedroom has a nautical theme (sort of), so I chose this fabric print. I love all things associated with nautical, don't know why unless it's that JW is a Pisces.
And that's it for now. One last note about making pillows. Your pillow will look much better if you make a pillow insert first out of muslin stuffing it with the fiber instead of just stuffing the decorative fabric. Your pillow will be smoother.
There you have it, pillow talk from Journaling Woman. Now don't you feel like making a pillow?
