See this pillow?
Looks like a lot of time and effort went into
embroidery, crocheting and sewing, right?
Well, I created a short cut.
While shopping at my local antique store, I ducked into one of my favorite booths ever. It is run by a fabulous vintage linens dealer.
From her delightful corner of the store, I retrieved a sweet dresser scarf - all ready embroidered & all ready edged with crocheted lace.
The only work I had to do was:
1 - fold it in half and pin it in place
2 - run it through the sewing machine (leaving about a 2 inch gap undone)
3 - stuff it with fiberfill (a crochet hook helped stuff it evenly into every corner)
4 - quickly stitched the last two inches closed
A sweet little pillow in 15 minutes or less.
Now I want to go find more dresser scarves!
