vintage currier & ives pillow



I loved making this pillow cover. The Currier & Ives cloth panel from yesterday paired up nicely with the snowball bedspread. And I had no problem cutting into the snowball cloth, it had been sitting long enough. Even the thread was vintage and it didn't break once. Felt like a dream, it was so easy.

 Happy full-moon weekending! xo

Your pillow is beautiful! I love the feel of old fabric and the sewing thread of my Gram's still sews as well, if not better, than what I own. Have a wonderful weekend.

love the snowball cloth. and yes, some of the old thread is my favorite. some of it is too weak for stitching, i have found. i usually test it before use. have a good one.

Jeannie, Nancy, Marie, Deanna, Trish, Nat & Shishi -- thank you all for your nice comments! I'm playing around with the idea of a long-term project making things with the snowball cloth...we'll see. So many ideas, so little time. xo
