pocket pillows...

For White Wednesday over at Faded Charm this week, I would like to show you what my friend Sue made for me...


Two pocket pillows ~ aren't they beautiful!
I showed Sue photos of some from blogs and Etsy shops and thought since she liked to sew she could make them herself.
And she did ~ for me!
The pillow covers are made from an old skirt and the flowers are from an old afghan she found while treasure hunting...


I love the old cabinet card she tucked in with the sheet music (she even gave me the frame the photo came in).
Look how sweet the flowers are...


I hope to talk her into making more ~ I would love to buy some to sell in my booth!
Thank you again Sue...I love them!

Thanks Kathleen for hosting and thank you for stopping by today!

Don't forget the sale in my Etsy shop!
Oh ~ have you entered my giveaway yet?
You still have a few days left to enter!

Your friend is so sweet! The pillows came out great, and I love that they were 'upcycled' from vintage finds. Happy WW Sandi!
Your giveaway looks amazing, I'm so happy to be a part of it!

Such a lovely gift, and a very talented friend you have there! That is recycling at it's finest.
I'm hoping that I'm not too late for the give away?
