Default Artistic Pillows

I love to create artistic pillow shams using vintage and antique textiles. Hope to make lots of them this year. It's a great way to learn and practice sewing and needle crafting skills. Here are my latest pictures. Hope you enjoy Sally

What a great Idea! I really like your repurposing! I have lots of old hankies and doilies and I am redoing my couch with lots of pillows. Thanks for the idea!

Default Hello

What beautiful fabric and your bag is very creative. A true one of a kind. Wonder if that is upholstery fabric?
