…perfect contrast of colors and textures!
At the heart of it all…this fabulous graphic that I found here at Vintage Printables…a wonderful source for vintage graphics! I added the French title (I can’t seem to resist doing that) and flipped it for you for use as an iron-on transfer.
I simply printed it on iron-on transfer paper and applied it to a scrap of linen. Next I raveled the edges and stitched it to the front of my burlap pillow cover. To save money, I made the back of Osnaberg…an inexpensive linen look-alike. I used an envelope-style closure (tutorial here) to allow me to reuse the down pillow form…under $3.00 from Goodwill. And…even better…I just take the cover off and put it away when the seasons change! Good deal because I was developing a huge pillow storage problem before I started making envelope closures! lol
And here it is! It cost absolutely nothing since I already had everything in my stash and I can use it all the way to Thanksgiving! Woo hoo! And next year I can even pull it out at the beginning of September to use! A seasonal pillow that I can use for three months…now that’s my kind of project!
