Things 101 & 102

My sister brought over some old clothes from Canada with a project in mind: throw pillows for the twin beds in her guest room.

She had an old pair of striped dress pants as well as a dark grey skirt with lace trim (both hand-me-downs from her daughter). I used one leg for each pillow front, which resulted in a seam running down the middle. I covered the seam with the grey lace from the skirt. The back of the pillows is dark grey wool from an old pair of my husband’s work pants. I seem to have an endless supply.

I stuffed them with 40x60cm pillow forms from Ikea.

    Yup, I recognise them. What are you going to use the rest of the skirt for? Or do we have to wait to find out?

      You’ll have to wait. Mostly because I have no idea.
