I have been collecting vintage linens for awhile. They are so pretty and unique. So I finally got around to using some of them. For this project I used a 14" x 14" pillow form, new white & yellow cotton ruffle trim, a piece of soft yellow bedspread, a striped pale blue sheet and an embroidered finger towel.
I loved the embroidery on this towel. I cut it to size to use as a front panel. I stitched it to a piece of the blue striped sheet.
Then I pinned the ruffle trim between the blue striped piece and the yellow bedspread piece. Putting right sides against each other. I stitched around 3 1/2 sides of the pillow, turned it inside out and stuffed the pillow through the opening. (next time I am making this a pillow case so it is easier to get the pillow form in and out of - duh to me) I then hand stitched the rest. I just love how it turned out. If my bedroom were these colors I would keep it for myself, but I am put it in my Etsy shop or sell at the next craft fair.
