GOT MY SEWING MACHINE SMOKING , NEW PILLOWS & TABLERUNNER MADE FROM ON HAND MATERIAL 0$
I made some simple pillows and incorporated some pieces of my great grams vintage tablecloth if you remember I have been using bits and pieces on some of my projects such as the stool make over and the garland. If you have any vintage material pieces be sure to save them even if they are torn beyond repair. You can incorporate them in something else such as I have. Before stuffing the pillow I ironed the lacey piece on with heat bond.
I sewed a table runner and added a bit of the red and white check as a ruffle and also more pieces of the vintage table cloth also added some of grams vintage buttons. I was going for the big ruffle look that I have seen in blog land that I love so much. If you are a beginner sewer you may want to start with a basic table runner this is a tad complicated . I also used heat bond to secure the vintage pieces.
Pillows and the table runner add a whole new look to get things looking spiffy for the holidays. By adding a touch of red check to the table runner it becomes a matching set. A great inexpensive way to refresh your living room.
I hope I have given you the sewing fever! If you don't have a machine put it on your Christmas list, every momma needs a machine. Don't get me wrong some of the nicest things I have done were hand sewn. So pull out your gently used textiles and put them to use. Thank you so very much for stopping by today!
