This is from a linen and cotton Potterybarn roll up shade.

I buy feather pillows from the Thrift Store and send the covers to Goodwill if I don't like them. I do make sure the pillow is very clean and a lot of times they are new. The most I pay is about $5.00!

I cut one side of the ties off.

Centered the pillow and rolled it up.

Gathered the end and wrapped the tie around it and tucked it under.

I really like the way it turned out. The material is light weight and natural feeling.

This is 2 table napkins from Anthropologie that I sewed together with the ruffles showing. I paid $1.95 for each napkin!

These are Rachel Ashwell Shabby Chic table napkins I bought at the Thrift Store for $1.91 for 4 of them.
I put new Potterybarn pillows that I also bought at the Thrift.
I think they are very cute.

This was a valance that came with the bed spread it's on.
This one I left the balls out.

I think I might redo this one and leave the balls on the outside.

I added vintage ribbon to tie it closed.

This was another Potterybarn curtain panel. I made 2 pillows out of this one.

I hope you liked my pillows, I might be putting them in my little shop.
Which is doing pretty good, I sold 14 things on Monday!
Our Wednesday is rainy and that does keep the temp. down.
I'm enjoy it.
Hope you are have a good day blogging friends.

I am loving all of the pillows - it would be to hard to choose just one to call a favorite! Thanks for the tutorial, it gives me a few ideas for my guest bed.

Everyday I learn more and more about you! I need to pay more attention to you when I see you and soak up your creativity. My favorite is the pillow with the ruffles made from Anthropologie table napkins. (hits forehead with palm of hand) What a great idea!
