Vintage Dishtowel Pillow

When the snow starts swirling around outside, my sewing matching starts calling, "come play with me!" So play, I did. I had a stack of vintage dishtowels with lovely stripes down the side, (remember in a past post my son bought them and was going to use them for oil rags in the shop. NO!).

While the snow whirled, so did my sewing machine. Two wonderful towels became a pillow.

The vintage dishtowels had loops on the ends, so I used a burlap ribbon and tied them together.

Two blue and yellow striped vintage dish towels have been recycled, upcycled, and remade into a comfy pillow.

Have a blessed week,

Hi Ele- I am back from my blogging break. What a cute pillow! I have never seen any with a loop on one end. That must have been to hang then up with? Have a wonderful Monday- I am going to sew later this week, too, I hope! xo Diana
