Can you guess what this is?

Ok..maybe the title gave it away.


That fluffy fabric from the past.
These blankets were once made by hand in the 1890's.
As the demand grew they started being produced in factories around the 1930's.
Now they are just a treasure when you find them!

And find them...
I did....Thank you Lord!

On our last day in Round Top
I found these just waiting for me to take them home!

Oh the ideas that were running in my head on the drive home...
Curtains for the Cottage
Pillows for the Bed
Hand Towels
Purses...oh the list went on and on .

So what did I make ?

So far I have made pillows

And more pillows...

Now before I start recieving hate mail
because I cut these up...
A few were already pre-cut.

Madison claimed the twin spread before I could even wash it .
Don't worry though...I made her wait.
I soaked all of them in Oxy.
They all came out like new!

The pillows were so much fun to make.
So easy too!

I think my favorite is the sweet pink flower.
This might be as girlie as I can get away with in our bedroom.
So far so good with the pink.
(maybe he feels bad about the ceiling fan..ha!)

I did buy two baby blankets as well.
One blue that say's baby.
One white with a  ducky in the middle.

I had an idea! 

A girl can  have only so many pillows..

So I have added some of the fabric to my Etsy Shop.
You can find them here too

Now you can make some too!
xoxo Susie~.

  10. I collect chenille bedding and got lucky to find two matching twin ones. I made them into curtains for my bedroom. I LOVE them. Lucky you on your find. Thanx for sharing.

  11. Great find! I love your pillows. They look wonderful. I have an old chenille spread with little blue flowers similar to one that I think I saw in your stack. I will have to start thinking...I'm thinking I can't sew and will have to think harder. :)

    be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  16. LOVE! I have a funny story about chenille. We moved to France when I was 11 and spoke NO French when we arrived. We hadn't been there very long and my mom went shopping for bedspreads and tried asking a French salesperson about "chenille." The woman looked at my mom like she was crazy. Finally, through I don't know what means, the woman got Mama to understand that "chenille" was French for "caterpillar." I don't remember what the French word for what we call "chenille" is, but there were chenille bedspreads on every bed in our furnished apartment there. :)

  17. They are dripping with sweetness! :) I love the little pink flower pillow. So cute!

  21. My daughter's bedding was all pastel chenille with a soft chair and accessories...I love it so much I saved it all. Thanks to you maybe I'll transform it into pillows that she can use on her big girl bed!
