Before and After

Two Pillows000_0018.JPG000_0005.JPG

My new craft project started with a trip to the thrift store where I spotted some Pendleton wool skirts, most probably from the 70s and 80s. I would know, I wore them then!

I cut them apart, which was really hard for me, they are so well made, meticulous craftsmanship, all fully-lined, ouch. Then I experimented by washing a small scrap in the washing machine and drying it. It hardly changed the wool, just made it a little softer.

The next you know, they have become pillows! I love reusing, especially such good quality.


  1. Beautiful job on the pillows!

  2. I love them! I love plaid and I love how you used the plaid in the pillows!
