Build it yourself!

crafts, creative, Uncategorized

So I created these decorative pillows out of a badly abused Vintage crocheted throw. This thing was in very bad shape. I rescued it from an estate sale we went to a few months back. I washed it and then was able to salvage all the good bits to make these pillows. I used coffee sacks for the back sides and for behind the crochet portion and even made the pillow inserts (which is the floral cotton fabric pillow) for them since they are just over 21″ square.

I was able to make 6 of them and will be selling these at the upcoming Goat Hill Antique Fair in Watsonville!
I feel good to have been able to save part of someones beautiful work. Now, her throw can live on as pillows in someone’s home. I do love the whole repurpose movement! 🙂
