Many years ago I gave this old 50s embroidered and appliqued fruit tablecloth a new life and created a pillow out of it. I never even used it.
The checkerboard border is pieced together and the piping trim is made from a striped fabric. How would you categorize this pillow? Retro 50s modern? I've always wanted a sofa where this pillow would be at home. I picture it going on a sofa like one of these:
And little did I know until I found them
when cleaning out my sewing room closet...
That pillow had three brothers. I actually made four pillow faces of that tablecloth and had forgotten about them all these years. All that work and then they sat in a bag at the bottom of the closet!
I mean this is a nicely made pillow! With a zipper!
Wow, I used to be rather meticulous!
And, also in the bag was more fabric, more piping, and more zippers! I was organized! These will be sold in my Etsy shop. Think anybody has a cool retro sofa to display them on?
