Vintage Fabric Valentine Pillows

You all know I love working with vintage fabric scraps, and my studio is heaping with little bits of tattered quilts that I can't bear to I spent the last day or so cutting X & O's for my new little linen pillows....
I only made a handful for a local shop- Gestures here in Cleveland, and for my Etsy shop. I'll most likely be making more little pillows with other sayings and such. What a wonderful way to use all those scraps!
I'll have these in my shop through early February. I'm working on a new little collection of products that I hope to share with you soon. It too was inspired by all my vintage fabric scraps...
...and soon some exciting news about a magazine feature of my work (I'm not allowed to tell!)
I'm off to clean my studio floor of all the little fabric scraps too small to use. Call me crazy but I put them in a little pile in the garden so the birds find them for nests in the spring. How exciting when you see a little nest with brightly colored fabric bits woven in! Ahhh- spring!
Have a great weekend friends!


  1. These are TOO CUTE!! I absolutely love them!! Thanks so much for sharing!

  2. What a great idea about using your scraps. I have tons of used threads. I think I'll do the same. Love your pillows.
