MY LACY PILLOW

This is what I have been working on for the past few days. Started out dying material and lace with tea. Some of the lace is new and some is vintage. The pocket was an old white work scarf with butterflies. It even had some holes in it worn from time. But I loved the buterflies and I like to reuse and update things. The crochet on the back was some I found at a yard sale. I have been wanting to make some pillows for a while, and seeing so many of these lace pillows just made me get with it. I plan to make some more, they are so much fun to work on. Hope you enjoyed my little adventure with pillows, I know I sure did!







Hope all of you have a restful night and a blessed day tomorrow. I'll show you some scarves I bought to make a pillow out of the next time I blog.
Smiles,
Pat

Hi Pat. Your pillows are beautiful! BTW, I found this idea in a decorating magazine I have dated Oct 2006...but made with pink fabrics and lace. SO "that blogger" who thinks she is coming up with these designs isn't as crafty as she thinks. I like your pillows the best I've seen! Just a mean person she is.....
