I hope that you are all having a wonderful weekend!!
I had a great time last night going to have dinner and seeing a movie with a couple of my girlfriends. Don't you just love girl time, laughing and talking and sharing stories. It makes my heart happy!
I enjoyed a quiet morning at home which doesn't happen often and wanted to get a project done. Hmm what to do??
On a recent trip to goodwill I had picked up a package of vintage linen napkins. Some had a small monogram and others were plain. They were a steal at 99 cents for about 20. I tell ya, I can't believe what people get rid of!
I must have this thing for napkins because I have a stack of different ones in a drawer in my kitchen. What to do with all of them??
How about make some pillows?
I have several old pillows in the closet (told you I have a thing for pillows) and I decided to use the forms and just make new covers for them. I had also grabbed four napkins on a recent trip to PB outlet (1.25 ea) and thought they would look great on my bed with my new euro pillows.
Pulled out the sewing machine and went to town. Granted I am not the best seamstress but I am happy with how they turned out!
|Linen and PB napkins found for a steal|
|I put a 2 inch hem around the pillow to make a border|
|White linen napkins..now a pillow!|
|This pillow I wanted a border so I sewed inside the white area|
|This pillow I sewed without the border and left a little linen showing|
Do you have any old linens or napkins you can turn into pillows? For $6.00 I have 3 new pillows and several more to make!! Happy sewing...or fusing..whatever works for you!
