Pillow Gallery


Way back in 2009, Christy from Sew Much Fabric, Sew Little Time made a great skirt from the coolest fabric I'd ever seen.  Even though cards and chess aren't my thing, I was drawn to this fabric--such cool colors and graphics and...PRETZELS!


I sent Christy an email, asking if maybe, just maybe, she had any scraps left.  She DID!  And she sent them to me!  Finally, three years later, I used the biggest piece to make a pillow for the guest room bed.  The pretzels didn't make it onto the front of the pillow, so I immortalized them on the back.


I love this little gallery of a few of my favorite vintage prints!  Maybe one day I'll follow up by getting some up swatches up on the wall as well.  It's a shame to keep them stashed away in a bin.

Love, love, love all your cushions. My favourite is the blue mushrooms, though the chess and pretzel fabric is pretty amazing too.
