A change of pace...

Sewed up some pillows, yesterday. They certainly brighten up the room. I am thinking I might put them away until winter. A friend gave me the fabric and I have had it draped over the door of my hutch- belonged to my grandmother. I liked it so much but what to do with it? It is an odd type of fabric. Looks like cotton but is very stretchy in one direction. It made easy going for making the "pillow sheets" as the girls call them. Stretched right over my old pillows. I had some red flannel- also given to me by a friend- and I used that for the backing- just overlapped it so I can take them off to wash them. Nice to have a freebie project to give the room a little lift.

A perfect pick-up and use for freebie fabric. I'm rather fond of freebie fabric myself....

Interesting fabric. I like the way you centered the fabric designs when making the pillow covers.

I love 'pillow sheets'. I have some one in Chrstmas fabrics that I put on my throw pillows during December (when I can find them).
