Dharma Trading. (Many of these I've shown before. Bear with me, please.)
here. It's made of a vintage tea towel. It's one of my faves.
This is also offered in one of my shops. Here I took a vintage tea towel with some purty big holes in it and cut it up to use with a remnant chenille fabric I found for a song in a lovely store in Austin.
Another vintage tea towel turned into a pillow, this on the bed in my guest room. I made the one on the right as well a lo-ong time ago, using a vintage needlepoint I picked up at an antique store and a remnant of fringe. Cheap those, but then I had an 8" down pillow form made for it. I mean, who can tell if a pillow that small is down? It's not exactly sink-into-able. Silly, silly used-to-be me!
And the point of all this?
here has sent her in a new direction--blue--so I used a tea towel I picked up at Dollar Tree when we were all in Fredericksburg. Few tea towels are big enough to make a decent square pillow so I embroidered some of the Dharma Trading linen to stretch it.
So, that's my show and tell for this lovely Saturday. The hub should be waking soon, and I haven't had breakfast so I'd best get moving.
