Ahh! Tomorrow is our party! We have been doing a few projects on the house that I can’t wait to show you next week. But I wanted to pop in and show you a pillow I made from an unlikely source. While I was at the thrift store searching for last minute costume necessities, I came across this Pendleton woman’s suit! I could actually easily see myself wearing it, but the skirt was too big (definitely wore the blazer yesterday with jeans, though). It wasn’t until I got home that I thought I could easily make the skirt into a pillow!
I slipped a form in and it was the width of the pillow exactly which made the project even easier.
I made sure I cleared the slit and the zipper and cut some off the bottom and top. Then just turned it inside out and I only had to sew the bottom closed, half of the top and I did I blind-stitch to close it after my form was back in.
So while you’re in the thrift store this weekend hunting down the last of your costume pieces (we can’t be the only ones that piece our costumes together at thrift stores rather than halloween stores, right?!) keep an eye out for some skirts–or sweaters!–with quality fabrics. I got myself a Pendleton pillow and blazer for $15.
Happy Weekend, you guys!
