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! ๐Ÿ™‚

Everything has a new life if needed.

So I went to an estate sale yesterday where a 96 year old woman had seemingly lived her whole entire life in. Her children had passed away before her. Being sad, she spent lots of money on things she really did not need to fill the hole in her heart. Now she has passed and her belongings are moving on in life. Some of it junk, some never warn clothing and shoes. Lots of kitchenware, books and craft supplies.
I found 2 old beautifully crocheted bed spreads/table covers. One was repairable with just having one small hole. The other was pretty ratty and stained. I am salvaging what is good on this and making some pillows. Utilizing the burlap coffee sacks I have acquired and covering the top with the cut pieces of the crochet blanket.
At least I can give some new life to parts of something I believe she had handmade herself…….
