vintage pillow cover come cushion..

Have you ever come across those pretty vintage embroidered flat pillow covers? You may have bought some to use as a doily or table centre piece. Well the other day I came across a gorgeous pair of embroidered ones with lovely crocheted lace around the edge. I knew exactly what to do with these.

With spring just round the corner.. HALLELUAH!.. I thought I'd use these to make a couple of cushions. All they needed was a backing, so I quickly cut out 2 rectangles of white cotton, folded one side in, so at to form a pillowcase and attached them to the back .

Whala!! I just love them, definately the quickest cushions I've ever made.  Being white and so delicate and fresh they really sing spring to me!         I am linking this post to Faded Charm's White Wednesday     ... take care, maryann
