Sew and Tell: Vintage Pillows

I love vintage fabrics and linens. I made these sweet pillows out of vintage tablecloths and scraps found on Ebay years ago. Here’s a tip – purchase scraps or cutters which are sold for far less money than perfect vintage linens and piece together a pillow, table runner or whatever you’re inspired to make.

Tablecloths are often sold as cutters because of stains or imperfections (we all have THAT one relative that spills something at Thanksgiving dinner). You can also find vintage notions, like buttons or ric rac to make your project even more charming.

These pillows make me smile and inspire thoughts of a cup of tea, a good book and a fluffy cat. Happy sewing!
