I have often seen pillows being made from sweaters and other clothing items on other blogs. When I spotted this dress of Jennifer's in the donate pile I thought why not make a pillow. It was a sorority dress from her college years. I always loved this dress and the fabric.
It was dry clean only but I threw it in the washer and here it is after being washed and dryed. Wrinkled ... but it ironed great.
This is my new little pillow I made with the fabric from the dress. It's not very big ... just an accent pillow. I had a few leftover scraps and made a rosette to go on it. By the time I cut out the pillow and made the cording I had very little fabric left. It was fun to make and I will always have memories of Jennifer wearing it.
I forgot to show a couple of blocks I made for this post a couple of weeks ago. I received the sweetest note from John'aLee thanking me for the blocks. God Bless our soldiers and their families.
Well I am back to my sewing room. I have a baby gift to make and I need to make a few Christmas gifts. I can't believe Christmas is two months away!
My how time flies.
Thanks for visiting.
